Oncogenic herpesviruses of amphibians is the classic Lucke herpesvirus
which induces a frog renal adenocarcinoma.  Oncogenic herpesviruses of 
fish include Oncorhynchus masou virus (epithelial neoplasms), Carp pox 
virus (epidermal hyperplasia), Turbot herpesvirus (cell hypertrophy), and 
Walleye herpesvirus (epidermal hyperplasia).  See The Herpesviruses, Vol 2,
Roizman, B. (ed.) Plenum Press, NY 1983.

Hope this helps.  There's probably more when the real herpes virologists
weigh in.
