Abstract

In virological studies of skin samples from dab with epithelial hyperplasia, a virus was isolated which was identified as belonging to serogroup II of aquatic birnaviruses. This is thought to be the first report of this virus from a marine fish species. However, it was isolated from only one of 64 dab with epithelial hyperplasia.
