An organic way of preventing and treating fish diseases that works.


For a very long time now, plant-derived compounds have long been used in the organic treatment of many diseases in fish farming.

A lot of plants have been used to investigate the effects of their compounds to enhance the immune responses and increase the protective abilities against diseases in fish farming


Many studies have shown that essential oils, extracts and isolated substances from plants might be an important and alternative treatment against diseases in fish farming.


The medicinal plants can be used not only against diseases but even more so, as growth promoters, stress resistance boosters and  for prevention of infections.


Also, these medicinal plants  provide a cheaper source for treatment and greater accuracy than the inorganic or chemical treatments without causing toxicity.


To date, more than 60 plant species have been studied for use to control different disease in fish farming.


I'm going to show you one of the best organic combination for treatment and prevention of diseases in fishes.


I prefer to use preventive measures because it's less expensive than curative measures. You should know that as a wise fish farmer, you shouldn't let disease creep in first before you start taking  preventive measures . You should prepare to keep all diseases far away from your fishes.
