FURUNCULOSIS

Definition

A systemic bacterial disease caused by Aeromonas salmonicida. All species and ages of fish are susceptible with the majority of outbreaks occurring in 1st year class fish. These outbreaks can occur at any time, are stress-mediated, and can be controlled by systemic antibacterials. Effective vaccines are now available, but the best form of control is good husbandry practice.
