Systemic Pathology of Fish
A Text and Atlas of Normal Tissue Responses in Teleosts, and Their Responses in Disease
by H. W. Ferguson
Edition: 1st., 1989
This is a histopathological description and atlas of normal and diseased tissues in common species of fish that are found in a range of environments, both freshwater and marine, and from farmed, aquarium and wild situations. It is a veterinary text of pathology in fish. This set of notes was originally intended as an aid to graduate students coming from a comparative pathology background, and who therefore already had a fairly good grasp of the basic principles and jargon appropriate to the subject. They were meant to illustrate some of the ways in which teleost fish respond in a range of disease situations, and to compare and contrast these responses to mammals. They were never intended to be an exhaustive list of aetiologies, but were aimed primarily at the diagnostic pathologist faced with a section of fish tissues, possibly for the first time.
