Need

Studies underpinning the further development of an epidemiological model
As the modelling work has progressed, the modelling team has determined that understanding transmission is a critical factor in the further development of the model. This will be addressed by two projects:
(1) The relative amounts of virus in the skin and mucus of infected fish vs shed virus in the water
(2) The relative importance of direct versus indirect transmission of CyHV-3 between fish

Objectives

1. Determine the most important form of transmission of CyHV-3 between carp.

Summary

This project, undertaken by CSIRO, aimed to determine the most important form of transmission of CyHV-3 to Cyprinus carpio (common carp). This was addressed through experiments to determine: 
     (1) The relative amounts of virus in the skin and mucus of infected fish vs shed virus in the water
     (2) The relative importance of direct versus indirect transmission of CyHV-3 between fish
