Abstract

The loss due to diseases in the aquaculture sector is estimated to be around 10-15% of the production cost and it can be substantially reduced if due attention is given to scientific health management. Most of the antibiotics are banned in aquaculture, so the alternative to maintain fish health is based on the supplementation of probiotics, immunostimulants and administration of vaccines. The main objective of developing a multivalent vaccine against vibriosis is to prevent the seasonal epizootics in cultured cobia Rachycentron canadum. The whole cell inactivated multivalent vibrio vaccine against vibriosis was developed, standardized and evaluated in cobia fingerlings.
