Summary "Chlamydial infection has been implicated as a cause of an emerging potentially fatal eye and throat disease, known as conjunctivitis-pharyngitis, in hatchling farmed crocodiles. This report provides information on the occurrence of chlamydial infection in groups of animals on farms across northern Australia and in the wild population. On the basis of the test results conclusions are drawn on the role of chlamydia in the eye and throat disease and on the likely source of infection to susceptible young stock. Recommendations are made on the adoption of farm management measures to minimise the impact of chlamydia and other possible infectious agents on individual farms. Suggestions on the direction of further research into the conjunctivitis-pharyngitis syndrome are made. The report is targeted at crocodile farm managers, farm management advisors, animal health professionals, research bodies and researchers in the laboratory and field."--RIRDC website
