Of the bacterial diseases of fishes, furunculosis has received the most attention. The pathogen responsible for this disease, Aeromonas salmonicida, commonly causes systemic disease in salmonids and in several freshwater forms. Sometimes the skin may also be affected in these species of fishes. As the disease is infectious, it is very important to take precautionary measures to prevent the infection from spreading. This paper deals with the skin form of furunculosis in Lates calcarifer and its recovery through a successful treatment.
