This disease strategy manual is an integral part of the Australian Aquatic Veterinary Emergency Plan (AQUAVETPLAN).
The manual sets out the disease control principles for use in response to a suspected or confirmed incursion of furunculosis in Australia.
Furunculosis is a serious disease of salmonid fish. Overseas it has had major impacts on farmed trout, causing high mortalities and substantial economic loss. It infects all salmonids, and may infect many other species which may act as carriers of the pathogen.
