Abstract

[Extract] Epizootic haematopoietic necrosis (EHN) disease is restricted to Australia and is caused by the ranavirus Epizootic Haematopoietic necrosis virus (EHNV). This systemic disease causes high mortality among naturally infected wild redfin perch (Perca fluviatilis), has an impact on farmed rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and can threaten populations of native Australian fishes (Whittington et al., 2010; Becker et al., 2013). European catfish virus (ECV) is a closely related ranavirus that was originally isolated from sheatfish (Silurus glanis) in Germany (Ahne et al., 1989). This virus causes high mortalities in sheatfish and black bullhead catfish (Ameiurus melas), and other economically important fishes may also be susceptible (Jensen et al., 2009, 2011).
