A number of picorna-like viruses have been isolated from fish: barramundi virus-1 (BaV), grouper virus, sea-bass virus-1 (SBV-1), smelt virus-1 (SmV-1), smelt virus-2 (SmV-2) and turbot virus-1 (TuV-1).

According to Hetrick (1994), picorna-like viruses also cause disease in Rainbow smelt, Atlantic salmon, Rainbow trout, Brown trout and Japanese parrotfish.

According to Chittick et al. (2001), "Picorna-like viruses have been documented in salmonids, Australian sea bass, Japanese parrotfish, red-spotted grouper, striped jack, and rainbow smelt (McAllister 1993a, 1993b; Noga 1996)".

Recently the genome sequences of two fish picornaviruses have been reported. Bluegill picornavirus (Barbknecht, 2009) and eel picornavirus (Philipps et al., 2010) are unrelated to each other.

Abstract: A number of new virus isolates from finfish have been reported in the scientific literature during the past five years. These include nine aquareoviruses, eight picornaviruses, six iridoviruses, five herpesviruses, three rhabdoviruses, three retroviruses, a paramyxovirus, and a coronavirus. Not all of these agents have been isolated in cell culture or established as etiologic agents of disease by controlled transmission studies. The burgeoning number of fish viruses is a reflection of the increased interest in fish diseases, particularly those occurring in aquaculture facilities, and the number will surely grow as fish farming intensifies on a global scale. This review chronicles the new virus isolates and lists them with other members of their virus family where appropriate.
