    Fish Disease of the week.
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Vibrio sp [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]
    [/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri] Beow is a picture of a female Watanabei angel showing symptoms of Vibriosis [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Vibriosis is one of the most prevalent fish diseases caused by bacteria belonging to the genus [/FONT]
    [/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Vibrio. [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]
    [/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Vibriosis is most often found in marine or brackish water fish. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Fish contract the bacteria [/FONT]
    [/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Vibrio [/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Calibri,Calibri][FONT=Calibri,Calibri]through open sores or feeding on dead fish that died from the disease. It is important to always remove dead fish immediately from your system. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Symptoms and treatment [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]The characteristic clinical signs of Vibriosis include red spots on the ventral and lateral areas of the fish, swollen, and dark skin lesions that ulcerate, releasing a blood exudate. There are also corneal lesions, characterized by an initial opacity, followed by ulceration and evulsion of the orbital contents. However, in acute and severe infections, the course of the infection is rapid, and most of the infected fish die without showing any clinical signs. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Symptoms may include increased respiration, loss of appetite, lethargy, skin haemorrhages, and death. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]Prevention is better than cure as these bacteria will either require antibiotics. Some aquaculture farms have even resorted to vaccinations. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Calibri,Calibri]In the end, good husbandry, feeding regimes, low stocking density goes a long way in prevention. [/FONT]
    [/FONT]NEXT WEEK WE WILL BE TALKING ABOUT FUNGUS.
