List of ICES ID Leaflets for Diseases and Parasites of Fish and Shellfish

​​The series is regularly updated with new and revised leaflets, with an emphasis on new or emerging disease conditions.​​

The list of ID Leaflets published thus far describe diseases that occur in fish and molluscs, complemented with a handful of other taxa (i.e. crustacean, marine mammal). The main focus of most leaflets are diseases caused by bacteria and protozoa, followed by diseases caused by vira and nematodes.
