Bacteria – The Hidden Fish Killer

Although headlines in the angling press tend to be dominated by notorious viral diseases like Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) and Spring Viraemia of Carp (SVC), the reality is that bacterial diseases such as Yersinia, Carnobacterium, Aeromonas are the real issue for many fisheries, killing tens of thousands of fish every year. Indeed bacterial infections were found in more than 50% of all of the fish mortalities attended by the Environment Agency in 2013.

Not only can bacterial infections lead to rapid fish kills; they can also weaken fish so severely that they fall victim to other ailments, particularly at critical times of the year when they especially vulnerable to infections. Once a bacterial infection strikes, a fishery owner is usually powerless to intervene and is forced to watch his precious stocks perish.
