No vaccine is a substitute for good management and diligent biosecurity in an aquaculture facility. It is always important to ensure the best water quality possible, provide quality nutrition, avoid overcrowding of tanks and raceways, remove dead fish to prevent pathogen buildup and spread, and reduce or eliminate unnecessary stress on fish.
