Abstract : Channel catfish virus (CCV) disease is a severe, short-lived infection of cultured channel catfish. It occurs primarily during summer and mostly in fry and fingerlings less than 4 months old. The virus is similar to the one that causes cold sores in humans. Since its identification in 1968, CCV has been isolated from infected fish in most areas of the United States where channel catfish are cultured.
