Data on an acute form of ascites (Spring viraemia) in carp.
Rhabdovirus carpio can be shown first in the gills of the infected carp, later on in liver, milt, kidney, and gut. Incubation time is 7 days in water of 12°C. The virus can be shown in the faeces of infected fish. Carp can be infected by contact with parasites (Argulus, Piscicola).
