Abstract Some 5 years ago the TargetFish project kicked off with 30 partners from 10 EU member states, 3 associated countries (Norway, Israel) and one International Cooperation Partner Country (Chile), to 'improve fish vaccination strategies to help prevent important diseases in the European aquaculture industry'. The characteristic of TargetFish has been the close cooperation between academic research groups and enterprises, both more or less equally represented in the consortium. The project brought together researchers on fish pathology and immunology who all shared one main interest: fish vaccination. The ambitious consortium chose to target vaccination against more than 10 important viral or bacterial pathogens of Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, common carp, sea bass, seabream and turbot with the overall aim of 'advancing the development of existing (but sometimes insufficient or suboptimal) and new prototype vaccines'. Please find below, not a summary of progress for all pathogens and vaccines addressed in the context of the TargetFish project, but a number of highlights of this large collaborative project funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) of the European Union (Grant Agreement 311993). The 5 year project finished on lst October 2017.
