Laboratory and Field Observations on Antivibriosis Vaccines
Attempts in British Columbia at rearing Pacific salmon in floating netpens in sea water were first undertaken on an experimental (pilot-scale) basis at the Pacific Biological Station, Nanaimo, in 1974. Objectives of the study were to determine just how rapidly market-size salmon could be produced and to determine whether all of the five indigenous species of Pacific salmon were suitable mariculture candidates. After only one year of operation, it appeared obvious that mariculture ventures would likely only be successful if effective control measures for infectious diseases such as furunculosis, bacterial kidney disease, and vibriosis could be developed. Consequently, studies to examine the feasibility of using vaccination to control these diseases were initiated.
