Abstract : The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) has been a pioneer in research on fish health; its activities date back some 60 years to about 1925, when the work was carried out essentially by only one person, Dr. H. S. Davis. By the 1940's the number had increased to several investigators, notably Dr. S. F. Snieszko, Director of the Eastern Fish Disease Laboratory, Leetown, West Virginia, and his associate Dr. J. S. Gutsell; and Dr. Robert R. Rucker, Director of the Western Fish Disease Laboratory, Seattle, Washington. For more than 25 years, Drs. Snieszko and Rucker led the research at these laboratories and made significant contributions that advanced the techniques of diagnosis and disease control-principally for salmon and trout. They gradually recruited additional researchers and provided specialized training to many qualified persons from the United States and abroad.
