Abstract

Six microbial diseases of cultured American lobsters (Homarus americanus) determined to be of significant concern to commercial aquaculture are discussed in relation to present knowledge of characteristics of the causative microorganisms, lobster susceptibility, environmental influence, severity, gross and microscopic recognition, physiological changes, contagion and control. The diseases reviewed here include shell disease, Gaffkemia, microbial epibiont disease, Lagenidium disease, Haliphthoros disease, and Fusarium disease.
