Abstract: This project will prepare at least five manuscripts dealing with the research activities funded by the Trustee Council under Project /162. At least five additional subjects are covered by the existing data: (1) survival of viral hemorrhagic septicemia (VHS) virus in sea water, (2) the natural history of VHS in wild herring, (3) serologic conversion and immunity in wild herring following an epizootic of VHS, and (4) age-related immunity demonstrated in laboratory-reared herring. Additional publications on the effect of net pens on VHS transmission and the presence of VHS-RNA in wild herring tissues as demonstrated by PCR (polymerase chain reaction) are anticipated, depending on results of FY 98 studies.
