NCCP: essential studies on cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3) prior to release of the virus in Australian waters
CSIRO Australian Animal Health Laboratory
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
1. Determine the most important form of transmission of CyHV-3 between carp.
