New cure round the bend

New waterborne drug has been developed for fish diseases in more than 20 years. It treats bacterial gill disease and external columnaris disease of fish, and saprolegniasis on fish eggs.

Shows what interest is taken in pisiculture, most of the industry is engaged in harvesting the natural reserves to extinction.

I for one agree with you essabee.

Great article and Im glad that they are finally bringing aquaculture into reality.

The way that man harvests ANY fish be it freshwater or salt has been proven that most wild harvestable stock for consumption will be depleted within a matter of a few hundred(200) to as low as 80 years.

It would seem like the right thing to do now would be to really start on perfecting aquaculture to the point where it can be a reliable source across the whole board as wild stock.

Maybe they should provide better homes for their livestock and then they would not have disease to begin with nor pest. Medications/herbicides/antibiotics/pesticides in general only have a shelf life of a few decades before resistance sets in. Poor management and using them in the food supply is an arms race with the pathogens/pest.

Better filtration, better environmental recycling are wiser approaches and gets much more effective management out of such medications(you need less and it's more effective).

A healthy place for the liver stock is more ethical, cheaper in the long run and better for the environment.

Intensive aquaculture uses up vast amounts of water resources, can displace and destroy natural wetlands, the nutrient rich effluents can damage adjacent ecosystems.

Sorry, it's not all rosy and the land of milk and honey.
Aquaculture just like Agriculture has the same types of issues.
Agricultural run off is a huge issue for water ways just like aqua culture.

Wise management and mitigation of wastewater via constructed wetlands can provide wetland habitat, waste water purification, reduced cost and impact on natural systems.

Wild Alaska Salmon = great nutrition and well managed resource. Farmed (Atlantic King) salmon = much less nutrition with food coloring added and damages wild runs and waterways with escaped farm fish/disease etc.

I agree with Tom. To help conserve wild stocks is the most important action. How to achieve this? Huge question with international ramifications. Letters to Governments and NGOs, incentives, awareness/education and alternative food sources.

Unless tighter regulations are enforced, harvesting of wild stock will keep continuing and habitats will be destroyed anyways. Im not advocating destroying habitats but reality of the situation is people are consuming more and more of natures stock and unless that issue is addressed conservation is moot.

Aquaculture has to be done to preserve what we have. We just need to find the most efficient, cleanest way to do it.
