Aquatic Diseases & Preventions

Disease has become a primary constraint to aquaculture growth and is now responsible for the severe impact on both the economic and socio-economic development in many countries of the world. The prevention of fish diseases is essential for the betterment of the fisheries industry, the improvement of farming production, and the increase in fish resources. However, it is difficult to detect the occurrence of disease in its initial stage as fish lives in water and if is detected too; it becomes very difficult to treat the ailing fish without disturbing the production regime. Therefore, prophylaxis rather therapy is more desirable in fish husbandry practices.

In case of any disease outbreak or health related hazards, departmental officers in the districts or any other technical persons should be contacted.

Farmers may also directly contact at the following address for disease related matters under “National Surveillance Programme for Aquatic Animal Diseases":
