Fishpathogens.eu offer a platform for sharing of available information on isolates of fish pathogens and their sequences. Several search functions have been implemented to help users find exactly what they are looking for. We encourage laboratories from all around the world to submit data of fish pathogens isolated in their laboratory.
The database was launched in Spring 2009 with a database on Viral Haemorrhagic Septicaemia Virus (VHSV) (Jonstrup et al. 2009). One year later it was extended with a database on Infectious Haematopoietic Necrosis Virus (IHNV) (Jonstrup et al. 2010). Currently development of databases on Spring Vraemia of Carp Virus (SVCV), Infectious Salmon Anaemia Virus (ISAV), and Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) are in progress.
The work is funded through FP6-2004-Food-3-A project EPIZONE and the European Commission financial aid for running the European Union Reference Laboratory for Fish Diseases. The database is maintained by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Fish Diseases and suggestions for improvements and questions are welcome on email@example.com.
