Health Care and Disease in Fish

The fish farming sector has been regularly confronted to the development of diseases strongly impacting fish’s performance and their survival rate. How can parasite pressure be better controlled in order to allow for increased growth performance and profitability in fish farms? What are the good farming practices to implement for preventing disease contamination and limiting economic losses?  Among the main pathogens, which ones are threatening the profitability of fish farms?

Articles in this section address the main principles of prevention against infectious diseases in farmed fish.They also cover the issue of alternative treatments for pathogens, since there is a pressing need to find substitutes to antibiotics in treating bacterial diseases in  farmed fish. Similarly, chemical products that are toxic to users and the environment must be replaced by less aggressive compounds. All these topics are covered in synthetic articles that will be updated regularly.
