Pathogens of major concern in fish: A review


Author(s): Kalawati Kumari

Abstract: Fish in the wild and in aquaculture facilities are both vulnerable to infection caused by a phylogenetically diverse group of pathogenic bacteria. Treatment and control options based on drugs and vaccines are insufficient, inefficient, or impractical. The traditional approach to studying fish pathogenic bacteria was to look at individual or small groups of virulence factors. Considered one of the fastest expanding animal - based food sector in the world, and it is expected to grow even more to feed the world's growing population. Existing and re-emerging diseases, on the other hand, are impeding fish and shellfish cultivation as well as yield. Many diseases lack vaccination protocols, and the overuse of antibiotics and some other chemicals is a major concern. This review reveals the implications of microbiota to mitigate (re-)emerging diseases in aquaculture and describes insights into the diversity and functions of fish bacterial communities revealed by next-generation sequencing.
