Lecture Contents③ prevention of epidemics：The photo on the left shows the fish from which gametes are obtained (called parent fish) being sampled for material to be tested for the presence of pathogens. In this lecture, we will introduce means of preventing fish diseases in aquaculture and seed production facilities.
Lecture Contents④ Global Efforts to Prevent Infectious Disease Epidemics：With the widespread global distribution of seafood, pathogens can spread to uncontaminated areas. Diseases that can have a significant impact on resources and emerging infectious diseases are equipped with coordinated government surveillance systems.
