Abstract

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. Use of a preventive medicine vaccine program and improved management can help ensure good health in a fish population and reduce the industries' use of therapeutic agents.
