Abstract

The importance of aquaculture to food security is well known, Aquaculture development therefore, has assumed significant momentum in several parts of the world. Diseases are among the greatest deterrents to the sustained production in aquaculture. Diseases like Epizootic Ulcerative Syndrome (ELiS) in fishes and White Spot Syndrome (WSS) in shrimps have amply demonstrated the devastating effect of disease outbreaks on aquaculture productivity and profitability Various diagnostic and health management tools are being.used to devise disease control strategies. It is becoming increasingly difficult to manage pathogens that have become endemic. Epidemiological approaches which have been very successful in human and veterinary medicine are now being increasingly recognised as important weapons that can be used in aquaculture to formulate disease control programmes.
