Aquaculture Health Management is an essential reference for the diverse aquaculture community. With the steadily increasing importance of healthy fish production and the expansion of the animal aquaculture industry to new geographic areas, new microbial and parasitic species with pathogenic potential continue to emerge. The book covers fish and shellfish health, the functional roles of pathogen emergence, and the impacts of nutrition and preventative medicine, such as pre- and probiotics, chemical treatments, relevant legislation, and more. It takes a comprehensive approach to fish health management, making it valuable to aquaculturists, practitioners in aquatic animal health, veterinarians and anyone in industry, government or academia.
