We thank the Government of Japan through the Regional Fish Disease Project for funding the Meeting on Current Status of Transboundary Fish Diseases in Southeast Asia: Occurrence, Surveillance, Research and Training which was held at the Traders Hotel, Manila, Philippines on June 23-24, 2004. Many thanks to the session rapporteurs for noting down the important topics and issues discussed. We are thankful to Dr. Edgar C. Amar for collating the discussion reports and providing accuracy by listening to hours of taped sessions. The artistic input of Ms. Ethel May C. Reyes for the cover design is very much appreciated. Dr. Agus Sunarto and Dr. Leobert D. de la Peña provided the photos on the cover. We also thank Mr. Raph Nacepo for the lay-out of the whole document.

Book chapterGD Lio-Po & LHS Lim - In PTK Woo, DW Bruno & LHS Lim (Eds.), Diseases and disorders of finfish in cage culture, 2014 - CABI PublishingThis chapter presents the viral, bacterial, pseudofungal and parasitic diseases in cultured warm freshwater fish. Focus is given on the distribution, causative agent, pathology, diagnosis, prevention and control of these diseases.
BookK Nagasawa & ER Cruz-Lacierda (Eds.) - 2004 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center.Groupers (Epinephelus) are recognized as economically-important marine fish and abundantly cultured in Southeast Asia for domestic consumption and overseas export. Various diseases occur in grouper aquaculture and frequently create serious problems. This book compiles information on various diseases of groupers such as viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic, nutritional, and environmental diseases. The chapters which are contained in this volume are indexed individually.
Conference paperH Sako - In TU Bagarinao & EEC Flores (Eds.), Towards sustainable aquaculture in Southeast Asia and Japan: Proceedings of the Seminar-Workshop on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia, Iloilo City, Philippines, 26-28 July, 1994, 1995 - SEAFDEC Aquaculture DepartmentLosses of cultured marine and freshwater fishes due to diseases averaged about 20,000 tons each year or 6% of the aquaculture production in Japan in 1980-1991. During this last decade, bacterial diseases have been responsible for most of the losses. Three trends are evident from epidemiological data. First, diseases caused by bacteria with multiple drug resistance are prevalent, and these are difficult to overcome by chemotherapy. Second, parasitic diseases and viral diseases that are practically impossible to cure are increasing. Third, some diseases seem to originate in juveniles (seed) imported from other countries. Further research should focus on: (1) improving dietary and environmental conditions, (2) giving the host animals resistance against disease through methods such as vaccination, and (3) developing diagnostic and disinfection procedures for epidemics. Active exchange of information is necessary to prevent, or alleviate the effects of, the spread of diseases through international export and import of juveniles.
