Although the mollusc immune system has been studied at the cellular level, the response to pathogens at gene expression level has not been thoroughly investigated. This study aimed to investigate the early molecular response of hemocytes of soft-shell clams, Mya arenaria, to Vibrio splendidus strain...

Immune function gene expression in Mya arenaria haemocytes was evaluated following in vivo infection with Vibrio splendidus LGP32-GFP and 7SHRW. Elongation factor 1alpha (EF-1alpha) with 2 (EF-2), after challenge with LGP32-GFP, and EF-1alpha with the ribosomal protein S-18, after challenge with 7SH...

Host-pathogen interaction models in aquatic species are useful tools for understanding the pathogenicity of diseases in cultured and wild populations. In this study we report the differential in vivo response of soft-shell clam (Mya arenaria) hemocytes against two strains of Vibrio splendidus. Respo...

Flow-cytometric characterisation of bivalve haemocytes is usually performed by light-scatter profiles based on size and complexity of the cells. Additional means of characterisation such as specific fluorescent dyes are not commonly used to discriminate cell subpopulations in challenged and unchalle...

Hemocytes Constitute the cellular part of the mollusc immune system and are involved in phagocytosis; the production of toxic oxygen radicals, antimicrobial peptides, opsonizing molecules, and lysozymes; digestion, excretion, and nutrient transport. In this study, we investigated the phenotypic resp...

In recirculation finfish facilities in the United States and Canada, biosecurity utilization is neither consistent nor uniform. Seeking reasons for this situation, we examined the beliefs, perceptions, and attitudes of managers and owners of such facilities about fish disease and biosecurity utiliza...

We have studied the replication of virus in tissues and development of lesions associated with infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) infection in Atlantic salmon using in situ hybridization (ISH) with a riboprobe targeting ISAV RNA segment 7 messenger RNA. Fish were infected with three ISAV isolates...

This paper provides the first empirical characterization of biosecurity utilization in finfish aquaculture. In fall 2001, a questionnaire survey was mailed to managers of finfish-rearing recirculation facilities in the United States and Canada to obtain baseline data on the frequency of use of 11 di...

Long-term elution tailing of organic contaminants, often observed when water or air is used to flush contaminated porous media, has been attributed to several factors. Characterization of this tailing behaviour through the quantitative analysis of multiple coupled factors is necessary to enhance our...

Current understanding of the etiopathogenesis of infectious salmon anemia (ISA) virus (ISAV) infection in fish comes mostly from virus detection in homogenized tissues taken from ISA-suspected mortalities. This study combined in situ hybridization (ISH) and histology to demonstrate viral RNA transcr...

Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) is a member of the family Orthomyxoviridae. Hybridization using riboprobes of segments 6 and 8 and histology were combined in situ to demonstrate the tissues that harbour ISAV during the clinical phase of ISAV infection in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) The c...

In the autumn of 2001, a survey was conducted to examine basic farm production and human resource characteristics of recirculation facilities in the United States and Canada currently growing finfish. An 86% response rate was achieved. The survey data indicate that this sector of aquaculture is quit...

In the autumn of 2001, a self-administered mailed questionnaire was sent to fin fish recirculation facilities in the United States and Canada to examine the extent of biosecurity currently practiced in this sector of aquaculture. This paper describes the results of this survey (86% response rate). I...

Comamonas sp. strain JS765 can grow with nitrobenzene as the sole source of carbon, nitrogen, and energy. We report here the sequence of the genes encoding nitrobenzene dioxygenase (NBDO), which catalyzes the first step in the degradation of nitrobenzene by strain JS765. The components of NBDO were ...

A modified technique for accelerating the growth of atypical Aeromonas salmonicida, the causative agent of furunculosis disease in salmonids, is described. The method was modified from the technique first described by Evelyn et al. (1989) in which a 'nurse' culture of Renibacterium salmoninarum was ...

Physiological, immunological and biochemical parameters of blood and mucus, as well as skin histology, were compared in 3 salmonid species (rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss, Atlantic salmon Salmo salar and coho salmon O. kisutch) following experimental infection with sea lice Lepeophtheirus salmoni...

'Winter ulcer disease' is a problem in seawater salmonid aquaculture in Norway, Iceland and Scotland. The disease is associated with low water temperatures (<6-8 degree C) and is characterized by shallow ulcers on scale covered tissue that may progressively deepen and penetrate muscular layers. M...

The isolation of infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) from asymptomatic wild fish species including wild salmon, sea trout and eel established that wild fish can be a reservoir of ISAV for farmed Atlantic salmon. This report characterizes the biological properties of ISAV isolated from a disease o...
