This bibliography was prepared to assist students of fish health, fishery biologists, librarians, and others in selecting reading materials or developing library collections on the diseases and parasites of fishes. A continuation of Fish Disease Leaflet 53, "Diseases and parasites of fish: an annotated bibliography of books and symposium, 1904-1977," it includes English language books, proceedings, and review articles published from 1978 to 1989. It includes references that are readily available by purchase or through interlibrary loan. The references are arranged alphabetically by author surname and then by year within the following major subject classifications: general works, bacterial diseases, histology, drugs, environmental diseases, fungal diseases, immunology, nutritional diseases, parasites, and viral diseases. I thank D. Anderson, R. Herman, and S. Hughes for reviewing the manuscript; G. Hoffman for providing valuable assistance; and V. Catrow and L. McKenzie for helping me obtain and verify references.
