A MANUAL OF - FISH PATHOLOGY
Keywords:FISH PATHOLOGY, farming practices, aquaculture industry
One of the main limitations of aquaculture production is the susceptibility of farmed fish to diseases due to farming practices or external factors such as pollution, climate change or even changes in the dynamics of product transactions in this industry. However, it is important to better understand and characterize those involved in the disease outbreak process as these result
in huge economic losses in the aquaculture industry. High-throughput technologies such as proteomics can be an important characterization tool, especially in the identification of pathogens and virulence mechanisms related to host-pathogen interactions in disease research and diagnosis, contributing to the control, prevention, and treatment of diseases in farmed fish.
The important role of proteomics is also maximized by its holistic approach to understanding pathogenesis processes and fish responses to external factors such as stress or temperature, making it one of the most promising tools for fish pathology research.
