Abstract:

In recent years, there is a significant expansion in commercial pond carp culture in India. While much of this development has focused on Andhra Pradesh, Punjab and Haryana, there are several other states such as Orissa, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu where commercial carp culture is gaining momentum. Diseases of varied etiology are, however, a serious constraint to the success of many of the freshwater culture systems. With the intensification of culture, fish health problems have become very common in Andhra Pradesh carp culture systems. There are several aquatic animal health problems in different culture systems that influence production from such systems. Infectious diseases of cultured freshwater carps are one of the major problems to successful aquaculture industry. Several bacterial, parasitic and fungal diseases have been documented in freshwater culture systems of Andhra Pradesh. The present work was conducted to isolate and identify different diseases from Indian Major Carps. Diseases pose a severe risk for sustainability of aquaculture. They cause physical and economic losses. As aquaculture is intensifying and diversifying, vulnerability to diseases is increasing accordingly. The epidemic spread and devastating effects of aquatic animal diseases such as bacterial, parasitic & fungal diseases have been documented in fresh water culture systems especially the carp culture system of Kolleru area of Andhra Pradesh. The present work is prioritised in the selected two districts i.e. West Godavari & Krishna (Kolleru area) of Andhra Pradesh, to isolate & identify the incidence of various pathogens of diseases seasonally in Indian major carp’s species.
