This publication is a series of six scientific reviews with authorship and input from 19 international experts.
The report covers six important diseases or health challenges affecting farmed salmon globally:
- Sea lice resistance
- Amoebic gill disease (AGD)
- Infectious salmon
- Heart and skeletal muscle inflammation (HSMI) and Piscine orthoreovirus (PRV)
- Bacterial kidney disease (BKD)
These diseases were identified as emerging, according to the foreword of the report, “as there is new knowledge on agent dynamics, they re-occur or they are well described in one region and may well become a threat to other regions with the same type of production”.
