Juvenile growth and susceptibility to Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) of farmed, hybrid and wild parentage



Juvenile growth and susceptibility to Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) of farmed, hybrid and wild parentage



Aquaculture 254(1/4): 72-81



Atlantic salmon of wild, hybrid and farmed parentage were established in November 2002 and hatchery-reared up to March 2004. At age 1+, farmed fish were significantly (F=28.3 P<0.0001) larger than wild fish, with hybrids intermediate (farm=38.1 g, hybrid=29.0 g, wild=21.9 g). A sample of fish from each group was fin clipped, mixed into two replicate tanks, then exposed to experimental challenge with the causative agent of furunculosis, Aeromonas salmonicida subsp. salmonicida via cohabitants.
