Abstract:

One of the present situations faced by the aquaculture industry is the presence of infections leading to huge losses. Among the fish pathogens, fungal infections come next only to bacterial infections. Hence the present study was attempted to identify the common fungal flora in the sediments, water and fish (Glossogobius giuris) from Lower Anicut, Tamil Nadu. Results indicate that a total of 18 species belonging to eight genera could be identified. The sediment and water recorded 11 species while the skin of Glossogobius giuris recorded seven species and the foregut and midgut six species each and the hindgut, five species of fungi. The presence of fungi in Glossogobius giuris highlights the need for giving immediate attention as fungal infections can be disastrous.
