Abstract:

With increasing human population, freshwater fish culture has been intensified throughout the world as fish is a source of cheap animal protein. However, aquatic fungi have an important bearing on fish health. Hence the present study was aimed at analyzing the commonly occurring fungi in a fresh water system in Tamil Nadu and assessing their infection on fishes. Results reveal that among the three seasons, maximum fungi (16 species) were recorded in the rainy season; while the fish that had the least amount of infection was Anabas and the fish that recorded maximum infection was Catla. Among the various fungal species, Achlyaamericana recorded maximum infection rates in all the three seasons.
