Abstract
. The epizootiology of epizootic haematopoietic necrosis virus (EHNV) was examined by experimental transmission and pathogenicity trials in the first known host species, Perca fluviatilis L., and 11 other introduced and native teleosts of Australia. Perca fluviatilis and four other species were highly susceptible to disease following bath exposure to EHNV. Three species developed disease only when inoculated by intraperitoneal injection, and four species wore resistant to infection under the experimental conditions employed. Renal haematopoietic necrosis was the most consistent lesion produced, with hepatic, splenic and pancreatic necrosis also occurring in cert...
