Capture fisheries are reaching their limit, and the increasing demand for fish protein can only be met through aquaculture. A burgeoning sector in this industry is the culture of salmonids which are a) under pressure due to overfishing and b) the most valuable finfish per unit weight. Salmonid culture is threatened by many diseases, including bacterial, which cause large financial losses for producers. Unfortunately, current control methods are unsustainable or largely ineffective. This is mainly due to the lack of knowledge surrounding fish immunity, a better grasp of which is needed to improve prevention and treatment practices. This review discusses antibacterial immunity in salmonid culture as well as successes and shortcomings of control methods. Improving our understanding of the salmonid immune system stands to benefit aquaculture by reducing mortalities and increasing efficiency. View this paper.
