Aquaculture Diseases & Health Management

Disease problems constitute the largest single cause of economic losses in aquaculture. In 1988, channel catfish producers lost over 100 million fish worth nearly $11 million. Estimates for 1989 predict even higher losses. The trout industry reported 1988 losses of over 20 million fish worth over $2.5 million. No data are available on losses sustained by producers of shellfish. Bacterial infections constitute the most important source of disease problems in all the various types of production. Gram-negative bacteria cause epizootics in nearly all cultured species. Fungal diseases constitute the second most important source of losses, especially in the culture of crustaceans and salmon. External protozoan parasites are responsible for the loss of large numbers of fry and fingerling fin fishes and are a cause of epizootics among young shellfish. Development of proper health management and advance research in disease control can help prevent these loses.

Irresponsible use of pesticides, herbicides, disinfectants and other chemicals also poses potential environmental hazards in addition to emergence of new diseases and contamination of water in the wild fish habitat. Moreover, poorly managed farms with intensive culture practices and feeding practices that increase pollution, waste and have adverse affect on local environment.
