Well done! This is very detailed and still easy to read! Also very interesting - I didn't even know this existed. You give a little history on the topic, how it affects humans, and the outbreak at Chesapeake Bay. I'm just curious what kind of ecological impact it has had on fish populations or estimates and how many aquarium fish have died because of TB? Also, what happens if someone/thing eats an infected fish?


A very interesting article! I did not know that fish can suffer from tuberculosis. Figure 3. gives very interesting facts and you provide very informative legends for your figures. I also really like your conclusion. I thought it was very intriguing that the fish tuberculosis could be a potential vaccine against tuberculosis. Maybe for mechanism, it would be easier to follow if you can provide a chart/ figures. Overall, well done!
