Vibriosis of sea-bass (Vibrio anguillarum)


Immersion vaccination: Adding lightly sedated bass in a perforated bowl (blue) within the vaccine dilution contained in a larger tank. In the vaccine dilution plastic bags filled with ice are hung in order to prevent the temperature of the dilution from rising. The process took place on board a service boat moored next to the cages.

Injection vaccination: Subsequent to deep anaesthesia, immobile bass float belly up in front of the vaccinators. Special equipment, such as "injection guns" and an ergonomically designed "vaccination table" are necessary.
