About The Book

16 pages of colour plates to aid identification.

Only published text available where all relevant material is referenced togther.

This manual enables the isolation and identification of bacteria that are found in aquatic animals (particularly fish). The emphasis is on bacteria from farmed aquatic animals (fish,molluscs and crustacea) but some attention is also given to other marine and freshwater animals such as mammals and birds, both captive (as in zoos) or wild, as well as aquarium fish.
