The prevention and cure of an infectious disease in cultivated juvenile dover sole solea solea

The prevention and cure of an infectious disease in cultivated juvenile dover sole solea solea

The disease condition, black patch necrosis, which causes serious mortalities of cultivated Dover sole through the development of areas of fin and skin necrosis, was shown to be infectious by co-habitation of diseased and healthy stocks. Spread of the disease throughout an affected tank was rapid, and high pathogenicity was evident, with most affected sole dying 1-2 days after the 1st appearance of clinical signs. Addition of a sand substrate to tanks both prevented occurrence of the disease and cured an established disease situation. No etiological agent has yet been identified.

Low pH levels were produced by the addition of CO2. Both species showed evidence...
