Abstract

Epidemiologic methods are essential to understanding infectious diseases in aquaculture. Unfortunately, many of these methods are poorly understood or not utilized by fish-health scientists and aquaculturists - often becauseof the lack of contact with epidemiologists who are willing to investigatefish diseases. Tn this paper, we describe direct interactions between epidemiologists and fish-health specialists that have resulted in an improved understanding of the causes and management of infectious diseases in aquaculture. We focus on risk-factor studies, risk analysis and infectious-diseasemodeling, evaluation of diagnostic tests and experimental studies. We alsodescribe characteristics of confined fish populations that make them idealfor developing and testing epidemiologic models and the theoretical and practical challenges of designing and conducting epidemiologic studies in fish farms. Throughout our presentation, emphasis is given to characteristics,opportunities and problems associated mainly with conducting epidemiologicstudies to intensive aquaculture systems. We conclude that the developmentof increased cooperation among epidemiologists, fish-health scientists andaquaculturists will be mutually beneficial and, therefore, efforts for such collaboration should be initiated from all parties involved.
