e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

A history of pathology and health control implementation in French fish farming


Diseases of intensively farmed animals are generally explained by environmental factors, some of them being frequently affected by zootechnical practices or by the development of pathogenic organisms favoured by host animal density. Such is the case of intensive fish farms, in which the density of water confers a special importance to physical and chemical parameters associated with water quality, making management procedures a key factor in combatting diseases. Control of parasites or viral and bacterial infections, however, remains a serious matter of concern. Since the early sixties, the range of documented diseases in France has not ceased to increase and to transform for different reasons: acquirement of knowledge on the pathogens, increased variety of fish species tentatively farmed, development in international trade of living fish in response to globalization. Therapy and vaccination being dependent upon the targeted organisms and the background in which they are applied, health control procedures very soon appeared as an effective method for disease prevention. Encouraged by the directives of the European Union, official heath control systems were progressively tested and adopted, resulting in a fair level of success. This success depends on necessary adaptations to local situations and on the commitment of fish farmers. Health control policies should therefore remain reactive and constant attention should be paid to disease evolution in a sector of activity very prone to quick changes.
