2010/741 Synopsis of AGD research to date and review/recommendation of future AGD related R&D directions including the development of a vaccine for AGD



By Mathew Cook

Amoebic Gill Disease (AGD) is a parasitic disease affecting Atlantic Salmon (Salmo salar) grown on marine sites in the south east of Tasmania. AGD was first identified shortly after the first Atlantic Salmon were introduced into marine sites in Tasmania in 1985. Since then, there has been a considerable amount of effort put into researching AGD to determine how industry can better manage and treat this disease.The aim of this project was to undertake a comprehensive review of AGD research conducted to date, to produce a single document encapsulating a generalised synopsis of the research undertaken with a key focus on a number of specific areas, including biology of the causative agent, epidemiology, the history of vaccine development and its success/failure, and breeding for resistance to AGD.
