This Training Guide gives advice to specialists and non-specialists on the following topics:

• fish species suitable for disease monitoring;

• sampling procedures;

• disease examination procedures;

• diseases useful for monitoring purposes and their diagnosis and classification;

• reporting of results;

• statistical methods applicable for data analysis.

The procedures recommended and diseases illustrated in this Training Guide are mainly based on bottom trawl catches from the North Sea. However, investigators should be able to adapt the model to their own local situations, if necessary.
