Webinar on Koi Herpesvirus (KHV) as a Potential Control Agent for Australian Carp

This presentation will provide some background information on the epidemiology of the disease caused by cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3), and will then consider the major questions that arise whenever the use of CyHV-3 is promoted as a biocontrol agent, including why it is necessary to control carp in Australia, whether it will be effective and safe to use, and what virus strain(s) will be used.

Presenter: Dr McColl is a veterinarian with training in virology, immunology, pathology and molecular biology. After completing a pathology residency and PhD at Cornell University, he joined CSIRO-Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) in 1990, and the Fish Group (at AAHL) in 2000, and is involved with KHV research that has been funded by the Invasive Animals of CRC, since 2007.
