Different stress factors such as inadequate physico chemical and microbial quality of culture water poor nutritional status and high stocking density can cause infection by opportunistic pathogens. Moreover unprecedented movement of aquaculture seed and brood stock between regions has made the intrinsic pathogen to activate and produce disease in host and other stressful conditions affecting the native fish stocks.
