Abstract

Since 2007 when infectious salmon anaemia virus was reported in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), the Chilean aquaculture industry has been restructured and intensification of Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) farming has resulted in growing problems of emergent freshwater pathogens. This work reports the isolation, identification and characterization of a group of Chilean Flavobacterium columnare isolates from recent episodes of outbreaks in Pacific salmon and rainbow trout farms in Rupanco Lake in Chile.
