The main aim of this project is to provide scientific evidence on the impact of environmental insults on the susceptibility of fish to viral disease and the creation of virus reservoirs

Key Customer Purpose:
The project will provide information on a fish population’s responsiveness to viral infection and could provide an early warning of ‘critical’ changes in the environment leading to timely intervention and reduction in disease spread.
