    Abstract

    We live in a world where the amount of information available is enormous. In order to keep track of the available knowledge, databases are needed to collect, store, and sort it. Www.fishpathogens.eu is a database developed and maintained by the European Union Reference Laboratory for Fish Diseases. The database was launched in June 2009 focusing on Viral Haemorrhagic Septicaemia Virus (VHSV), extended with Infectious Haemorrhagic Necrosis Virus (IHNV) in 2010, and is now being extended to include Spring Viraemia of Carp Virus (SVCV), Infectious Salmon Anemia Virus (ISAV), Betanodaviruses, and Koi Herpes Virus (KHV). The database design is based on freeware and could easily be implemented to include pathogens relevant for other species than fish. We present the database using the data on the different fish pathogens as example. However if some are interested in the platform we are happy to cooperate and share the database structure with other Epizone members.
