- ... We examined the ability of developing Japanese flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) to acquire protective immunity after exposure to viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV). Juveniles measuring 9.8cm average body length were not susceptible to infection with VHSV at 20°C, while the smaller fish were susceptible. Mortality was not observed after secondary infection at 15°C in the 9.8cm cohort that h ...
