Within the last decade skin diseases have become a major challenge for rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) aquaculture in Europe and mariculture in the Mediterranean. The causes of these conditions remain largely elusive, however. A workshop was organised to focus on recent advances for some of the more notable skin disease problems affecting these aquaculture industries, namely red mark syndrome (RMS) and puffy skin disease (PSD) in rainbow trout and petechial rash (PR) in sea bream (Sparus aurata) and sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and also some other skin diseases that are starting to emerge in Mediterranean aquaculture species. The target audience for the workshop was researchers with an interest and/or research focus on fish skin diseases or who had an interest in emerging fish diseases/pathogens.
