Here’s a paper produced by Fish Vet Group that details nearly 500 events of parasitic interaction with aquaculture species costing aquaculture businesses "an annual loss of 5·8–16·5% of the value of UK aquaculture production (across all species in both freshwater and marine systems)… these estimates are only for UK losses and do not include losses due to bacterial and viral pathogens, they can still be considered low when compared with anecdotal reports suggesting that typical disease losses for certain aquaculture industries in Asia range from 30 to 50%."
This is why you need fish vets working with your operations. We can help you with surveillance, diagnostics, biosecurity, and treatment/management. For a list of services The Fish Vet’s Team offers, please DOWNLOAD our Services Manual at this link.
