Treatment of fish disease
  1. NC Stuart


The treatment of fish diseases is relatively unsophisticated. Administration of drugs may be by solution in water, incorporation in feed or by injection. Many of the drugs used are traditional remedies although antibiotics and anaesthetics are being increasingly employed. The efficacy of the drugs may be affected by various environmental factors such as pH, the presence of organic matter and temperature. Some of the drugs may themselves affect the environment by destroying plants or bacterial filters.
