Abstract

Outbreak of disease problems is a major concern and exerts heavy economic losses in fish farming as in any other farming practice. Aquaculturists are, therefore, interested in developing cost-effective management strategies that can either prevent the outbreak or reduce the severity of epizootics. Nutritional modification is one of the important management strategies currently under exploration. The inlluence that dietary factors may have on disease outbreaks in cultured fishes has been recognized since many years. In contrast to extensive type of farming systems where fish obtain all or part of their dietary nutrient needs from naturally available food organisms, fish in intensive culture conditions rely more on the provision of a nutritionally complete diet. Here, diet can have significant effects on disease resistance mechanisms and hence on infectious disease incidence and severity. A number of nutrients, mainly vitamins, minerals and fatty acids have been implicated in this regard.
