About the Author

Dr. Fred Kibenge is Professor of Virology at the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island, Charlottetown, P.E.I, Canada, where he has been Chairman of the Department of Pathology and Microbiology for several years, and teaches veterinary virology in the second year of the DVM curriculum. He has been working with animal viruses for more than 30 years in addition to prior extensive post-doctoral research experience in virology in UK and USA. He is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists, ACVM (sub-specialty Immunology). He has published extensively on the detection and virology of fish viruses. Dr. Marcos Godoy has done extensive research in fish diseases, specifically in salmon aquaculture in Chile, with Dr. Kibenge, working in aquatic animal virology to better understand aquatic animal diseases for the prevention and control of such diseases of farmed fish for a sustainable and safe food supply.
