Aquaculture Products depends on two important factors: environmental parameters in the farms and the health of cultured animals. Fish diseases may cause severe losses on fish farms through:
- reduced fish growth and production;
- increased feeding cost caused by lack of appetite and waste of uneaten feed;
- increased vulnerability to predation;
- increased susceptibility to low water quality;
- death of fish.
While it may be difficult to avoid fish diseases completely, it is better to try to prevent their occurrence rather than to allow them to develop and then attempting to cure them once they start to cause problems .To cure a fish disease is much more difficult and generally calls for the services of a specialist. By the time proper treatment can be organized, the disease may have become more serious. In some cases surviving fish are so weakened that effective treatment becomes difficult.
However several simple and effective treatments can be used, either for prevention or early control of disease before it becomes too serious.
Being non toxic and biodegradable,our products are very well accepted mainly in view of its efficacy, superiority besides economics. During initial stages of aquaculture, if any infection occurs, to rectify this one needs a soft disinfectant so that the problem may be solved without causing any stress to the cultured species.
