Abstract:

Fish Diseases: Prevention and Control Strategies provides essential information on disease prevention and treatment by the most experienced fish culturists in the industry. The book presents both traditional and novel methodologies of identifying and addressing fish disease risk, along with preventative and responsive insights to the challenges impacting fish production today.Both specific (vaccination) and non-specific (immunostimulation) approaches are explored, from maintaining optimal environmental conditions, to understanding how stressors in fish affect their immune system.Includes relevant information on government restrictions on drug usage in aquaculture to address the strict demand for fish products free of pollutants/antibioticsPresents best practices in fish farming to prevent disease and promote good health status and fish disease managementProvides the most recent research on fish diseases prevention, the pathogens most studied, and options for methods of treatment.
