low prevalence of splenic mycobacteriosis in migratory striped bass morone saxatilis from north carolina and chesapeake bay, u.s.a.mycobacteriosis is a chronic bacterial disease causing an ongoing epizootic in striped bass morone saxatilis in chesapeake bay, u.s.a. prevalence of disease is high in pre-migratory fish, and multiple species of mycobacterium spp. have been isolated. however, prevalence of mycobacteriosis in the coastal migratory population is unknown and is of concern to multiple coastal states, as disease-related mortality may impact the long-term health of the population. histological examinations of spleens ...201020815326
the influence of fish length on tissue mercury dynamics: implications for natural resource management and human health risk.consumption of fish has well-known human health benefits, though some fish may contain elevated levels of mercury (hg) that are especially harmful to developing children. fish length is most often the basis for establishing fishery harvest regulations that determine which fish will ultimately be consumed by humans. it is, therefore, essential to quantify the relationship between fish length and hg accumulation in regard to harvest regulations for effective fishery and public health policy. we ex ...201323388852
