A Summary Of Fish Disease Cases Received Over A Five-Year Period At The Southeastern Cooperative Fish Disease Laboratory

During the period July 1, 1964 to June 31, 1968, a total of 300 cases was received for diagnosis at the Southeastern Cooperative Fish Disease Laboratory at Auburn University. Ninety of the cases (30%) were determined to be caused by parasites, 104 cases (34.7%) were determined to be caused by bacteria or viruses. The remainder of the cases were routine prestocking checks, kills due to factors other than disease producing organisms, or undetermined cases due to unsuitable specimens for diagnosis or lack of data. A detailed breakdown of the cases is given including seasonal occurrence, prevalent organisms associated with epizootics, and environmental factors associated with epizootics when known.
