Technical Title: “Development of New Immunization Strategies AgainstPiscirickettsia salmonis in Salmonids: Passive Immunization”
Conventional Title: Creation of Alternative Passive Immunization against Intracellular P salmonis.
- Director: Bq. Jonathan Morales
General Objective (Technical Description): Development of preventive and curative immunization treatments against SRS.
Status: The technological development has been already accomplished and currently the prototype is being improved for its use in the salmon industry. In process of patent inscription.
Project Benefits: Passive immunization could lower the incidence of SRS complementing other treatments. Economic benefits are directly related to less production losses in the final stages of fish farming.
