    Pseudotuberculosis caused by Photobacterium damselae subsp. piscicida (= Pasteurella piscicida) is a bacterial disease of cultured fish belonged to genus Seriola. The disease frequently occurs among juveniles at a water temperature ranging from 20 to 25°C with a high mortality rate. A characteristic disease sign is occurrence of a lot of small, white spots in the spleen and kidney, which consist of bacterial colonies and focal tissue necrosis. The disease can be cured by administrating antibiotics, but P. damselae subsp. piscicida possessing multiple drug resistance has been found. In Japan, several adjuvant vaccines are commercially available.

    Red sea bream iridoviral disease (RSIVD) has caused severe economic damages to mariculture in Japan since it was first found in 1990 in the western part of Japan. The causative agent (red sea bream iridovirus: RSIV) was successfully isolated and identified in few years and then a useful diagnosis method by indirect fluorescent antibody test using anti-RSIV monoclonal antibody was developed. In addition, effectiveness of formalin-inactivated virus as a vaccine was demonstrated in 1997 and the vaccine started to be sold in 1999 in Japan as the first commercially available vaccine against a viral disease in marine fish. In this review, we summarized the history of RSIVD research in the past few decades.

    Myxosporean emaciation disease is caused by the enteric myxosporeans Enteromyxum leei and Sphaerospora fugu (syn. Leptotheca fugu). It emerged in the aquaculture of tiger puffer since mid-1990s in Japan. Thus far, more than 50 marine fishes have been reported as susceptible to E. leei in Europe and East Asia. As it has a wide host range and is feasible to transmit directly from fish to fish, E. leei is considered to be one of the most devastating parasites in warm water seawater aquacultures. Regardless of its economic impact, neither effective treatment nor preventive measure for the disease has been established until now. To control this disease, further studies are needed for better understanding of the biology of the parasites and of the host-parasite interaction.

    In the present study, we examined a disease caused by Aeromonas veronii bv. sobria in sea cage-farmed European seabass Dicentrarchus labrax, in the Aegean Sea, Greece. Commercial sized fish were affected by A. veronii bv. sobria and exhibited high morbidity and mortality. Gross pathologic features and histology revealed a systemic infection characterized by the presence of abscesses and chronic granulomatous inflammation. Two clinical bacterial isolates (Aero NS and Aero PDB) were identified as A. veronii bv. sobria based on bacteriological characteristics and sequence analysis for 16S rRNA and gyrB genes. Infectivity tests in the form of intraperitoneal injection administration (Aero NS) and immersion in a bacterial suspension (Aero NS and Aero PDB) revealed that both isolates could cause clinical signs similar to those observed in the field and high mortality rate. To our knowledge, this is the first report of A. veronii bv. sobria isolated from farmed European seabass in the Mediterranean Sea accompanied by supporting data of its pathogenicity.

    Lactococcus garvieae is recognized as a crucial bacterial pathogen of freshwater and marine fish species. It has been divided into two serological phenotypes, namely KG and KG+. Difference of the two phenotypes is owing to the presence or absence of polysaccharide capsule, and a phenotypic change from KG to KG+ occurs during stocking of isolates for a long period or by repeated subculturing. We found that the phenotypic change occurred more readily in L. garvieae isolates from cultured filefish, thread-sail filefish Stephanolepis cirrhifer and black scraper Thamnaconus modestus, than those from other fish species. Thus we studied the gene cluster for capsular polysaccharide biosynthesis (capsule gene cluster) of a filefish isolate, strain BSLG13015, and revealed that the strain possessed the same capsule gene cluster as those from other fish species, but that it was integrated in a newly identified plasmid. The plasmid, a size of 31,654 bp and circular, was named pBSLG13015. It was detected in all of KG filefish isolates but not in KG+ filefish isolates or L. garvieae from other fish species. It is highly probable that the easier change from KG to KG+ in L. garvieae filefish isolates is attributed to the loss of the plasmid.

    Genomic and mRNA sequences of Renibacterium salmoninarum, the causative agent of bacterial kidney disease (BKD), were detected in the kidney tissue and surface mucus of asymptomatic fry and juveniles chum salmon Oncorhynchus keta, using nested PCR, quantitative real-time PCR and RT-nested PCR. Fry were obtained from a hatchery belonging to the Hokkaido Salmon Resources Association from March 25, through May 10, 2016. In addition, the fry were transferred from the hatchery into a wet laboratory at the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Research Institute, reared in running well water at 8°C-10°C, and monitored for the bacterium from April 19, 2016 through January 4, 2017. The fish showed no mortality from BKD, and live bacteria were not detected in the kidney tissue by culture. Yet prevalence of R. salmoninarum genome and positive rate of the mRNA in the kidney tissue samples were 0%-100% and 0%-70%, respectively, with number of genome of 1.0 × 101-1.7 × 104 copies/mg. Surface mucus samples, which were obtained in November 21, 2016 and January 4, 2017, showed similar detection levels to the kidney tissue based on prevalence and intensity of the genome. The results verify subclinical infection with R. salmoninarum in chum salmon fry in Hokkaido, Japan.
