Caught between an ever-growing demand and a shrinking supply, fish biologists are drawing on increasingly sophisticated technologies to increase populations of food fish. In addition, they are charged with maintaining and increasing endangered fish and those whose stocks must be maintained for a healthy ecosystem. In these proceedings from the symposium held in April 2003, contributors describe the dynamics of this complex situation and their work in finding solutions. General topics include the status and potential for vaccination, including a paper comparing vaccination to eradication techniques for disease control, recent progress in fish and crustacean immunology, including a paper on adaptive immunity, a series of updates on new vaccines for fish, including a worldwide overview and papers on viral and bacterial immunization, new adjuvants, formulation and delivery techniques such as an ultrasound technique, recombinant and live vaccines, DNA vaccination and its successes and constraints, updates on regional and international standards for the approval of vaccines, societal aspects such as consumer perceptions of quality and a paper on vaccines for the control of reproduction. The proceedings include abstracts of posters.
