Stress is a major concern in aquaculture as many stressors are present in hatchery which can predispose the fish to compromised growth and health and ultimately promote disease. Larval stages may be more sensitive to stress as compared with other stages, however little is known about behavior and stress at this time. Fish which undergo metamorphosis are most vulnerable to stress. Although with the increasing interest in fish culture, the study of stress in the hatchery is an important field for future. Proper management practices if followed in the hatchery will reduce the stress and will ultimately lead to the better survival of fish.

Keywords: Aquaculture, Stress, Larval stage, Fish.
