    Brian,



    Talking of Avatars. Why do you use the x-ray of Gardner's brain for yours?



    Mark.



    Now that is what I call scandalous.

    Hi Mark,



    I'll post a more detailed update upon returning home tonight, but here's a general run-down.



    There were over 60 people in attendance from my observation, including Mr. Koike of Niigata, and a representative from the Inland Fisheries Examination Station in Niigata.



    Professor Miyazaki presented very encouraging results from his test trials with the Aeromonas Hydrophyla vaccine. There is at least one other person in Japan that completed a vaccine over two years ago, but doesn't wish for their identity to be disclosed at this point in time.



    The crux of the afternoon was KHV, with presentations by 4 people. The seminar was kicked of by Prof. Yuasa, highlighting his experience and study with the outbreak in Indonesia. He was one of the people at the forefront of KHV study before it actually surfaced in Japan. The talk focused on the different farming methods, water sources, and possible contamination from Talapia and a food catfish which I can't remember the name of.



    Prof. Hatai's talk focused on the symptoms, infection rate, and gill necrosis amongst other things. He introduced a supposed vaccine called "Ko Vax" which has been developed either in Europe or Israel. I had some problems hearing from the back of the room.



    I'll recap professor Miyazaki's and Shunichi Yoshida's presentations for later.



    All in all, very good and also very encouraging to see the serious attention being given to the disease at the government and organizational level. Will also have an update from the Shinkokai (AJNPA) concerning the World Nishikigoi Summit as well.

    Good to hear

    Brian



    As expected, good to hear that the guys are tackling this potential threat head on and not brushing it under the carpet hoping it will just go away.
