As diseases contribute severe economic losses to aquaculturists the present study was aimed at use of drugs in combating prawn bacterial diseases. Among the five antibiotics used, results revealed that the application of neomycin sulphate and streptomycin significantly reduced the percentage of mortality in prawns, while neomycin sulphate was effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa streptomycin was effective against Vibrio harveyi and both neomycin sulphate and streptomycin was equally effective against Vibrio parahaemolyticus.
