A Bibliography on the Culture and Maintenance of Specific Pathogen-Free Organisms

Christopher L. Brown, Kirk O. Hahn and David E. Coleman

Opening Paragraph:

This document lists citations of articles concerning the cultivation of specific pathogen-free (SPF) or disease-free organisms. Its purpose is to provide a starting point for people wishing to investigate practical aspects of pathogen-free culture. Additional information can be obtained from the University of Hawaii’s Hamilton Library through the Pacific Regional Aquaculture Information Service for Education (PRAISE). These references were drawn from a variety of databases including but not limited to Biological Abstracts, Medline, AGRICOLA and Aquatic Sciences and Fisheries Abstracts. Wherever possible, the authors have provided an English translation. They have also included some reports on related themes of disease management and control. The authors have made every effort to make this bibliography as complete and current as possible. References compiled in this study include listings in the 1992 and earlier editions of the databases mentioned above. In most cases, these databases are complete from the late 1960s or early 1970s up to 1992. A few more recent citations that came to the authors’ attention were added during the preparation of this report in early 1995.
