The importance of aquaculture to the population of India is well known. There is considerable scope for improving the fish protein resources by resorting to intensive and scientific methods of aquaculture. Aquaculture helps to augment production and provides gainful employment to people. In this system, fish is stocked in culture farms at a high density and given artificial feeds. Unnaturally high population favours the spread of diseases. Disease is one of the most serious problems in aquaculture. The frequency and severity of disease outbreaks have increased with the intensification of aquaculture.
