Abstract:

Infectious Hematopoietic Necrosis Virus (IHNV) causes a significant proportion of disease in trout as well as in salmon. However, there is currently no commercial vaccine available to easily immunize fish against IHNV. A preventive treatment to reduce these considerable losses would be a significant contribution to the farmed salmonid industry. Bacteria belonging to the genera Pseudomonas, Achromobacter, coryneforms, Vibrio and Alteromonas sp. were shown to have anti IHNV properties. Given the encouraging data already existing on its antiviral potential, we have chosen to evaluate Pseudoalteromonas sp. as a probiotic for protection against IHNV disease in rainbow trout.
