Abstract Gonadal (GD1I), kidney (K1K) and gill (G1B) cell lines were established from tissues of the walking catfish using an improved procedure. These cell lines were found to be susceptible to channel catfish virus (CCV) infection. A virus sample (HPV) propagated for 59 passages at low dilution in K1K cells was found to be of lower virulence for young channel catfish than two other field strains of CCV (LPV) with fewer in vitro passages. Injection of channel catfish with HPV protected these fish from subsequent challenge with the more virulent LPV. Challenge of walking catfish with several different CCV samples including wild strains and Clarias- propagated virus failed to produce any mortalities.
