Original versionThis report is not to be cited without prior reference to the authors
Arctic char of six different strains have been vaccinated against vibriosis and a relative protection (RPP) of 98% was demonstrated by waterborne challenge. This species is highly susceptible to vibriosis and the gross pathology is similar to vibriosis in rainbow trout. Sex maturation and genetics may have some impact on disease resistance.
