Fish And Shellfish Disease Management

Diseases afflicting aquatic animals are addressed by developing cost effective as yet sensitive diagnostics, biological control methods, biological response modifiers, vaccines, novel drugs and drug delivery systems. We also aim to elucidate the physiological and immunological features of aquatic animals in response to pathogens, which will directly enable us to better understand the diseases and therefore develop targeted drugs/ control measures against it. Our current focus is on two major diseases of shrimps, namely, vibriosis and white spot disease besides the diseases affecting ornamental fish culture.
