3. Prevention & Control of Aquatic Diseases


The division of fisheries disease control is one of key subjects of PRFRI. It has carried out relevant study for more than forty years, achieved some outstanding scientific research achievements, such as immune protection of grass carp hemorrhage, pathogenesis of Aeromonas hydrophila, comprehensive prevention and control of Siniperca chuatsi viral disease, and leads the development trend of prevention and control of China aquatic disease. At present, the discipline has formed a scientific academic echelon with reasonable structure and powerful influence in China, and primarily carries out research on the fields of outbreak and alarming of aquatic disease, aquatic animal immunity, aquatic drug develop and safety use technology, aquatic disease bionomic control, fishery public health, et al.. The research fruits which we have achieved and will achieve in the future, provide technology support for the Prevention & Control of Aquatic Diseases and quality safety of aquatic product.
