Biosecurity, the concept of protecting culture animals from contamination by diseases and of preventing the spread of diseases across boundaries, has become increasingly important with the intensification of aquaculture production systems. Aquaculture producers and policy-makers alike have a stake in the methods being used for early detection and exclusion of pathogens from aquaculture systems. This book contains 13 peer-reviewed and edited papers that were presented at the workshop, "Biosecurity in Aquaculture Production Systems: Exclusion of Pathogens and Other Undesirables," held in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 23-26, 2001, as well as two solicited papers and a summary of the extensive discussion sessions among an international panel of experts at the workshop. The chapters cover the wealth of experience from the varied perspectives of these experts on using biosecurity measures to take the offensive against the spread of diseases and parasites in production systems for major aquaculture species.

The book covers both the biotechnological and policy development approaches to biosecurity in aquaculture. Chapters covering the biotechnological approaches being taken to exclude pathogens were presented at the workshop by G. Breuill, A. Horowitz, M. L. Kent, P. H. Klesius, D. V. Lightner, R. J. Roberts, T. R. Tiersch, G. A. Wooster, and M. Yoshimizu. Chapters describing regulatory and policy development processes around the world were presented at the workshop by D. J. Alderman, V. Findlay, and A. D. Scarfe. The salient points of the biosecurity program used in the U. S. commercial poultry industry (F. N. Hegngi) are also included, to allow aquaculture specialists to benefit from their successful experience. Chapters are thoroughly referenced, making this a must-have for any aquaculturist today interested in excluding and controlling disease.
