    Prevention of infectious diseases is one of the major concerns in the rapidly growing aquaculture industry. Stress and disease that accompany intensive fish culture have led to increased treatment with antibiotics and chemicals. The use of drugs and antibiotics in aquaculture is highly regulated to avoid risks to public safety and to prevent the development of resistant strains of pathogens. Consequently, farmers are left with few resources other than the use of preventive measures such as early diagnosis, good husbandry techniques, vaccination, and the use of strains of fish and shellfish genetically resistant to diseases. The best alternative in this direction would be stimulating the immune system of the fish itself, thereby equipping it with desirable adaptive changes in the defence mechanisms against common pathogens.
