Abstract
Diseases of fishes can be important because they may induce mortality. Additionally, sublethal diseases may cause poor growth conversion, poor flesh quality, or undesirable visual changes. Furthermore, some pathogens of fish are infectious to humans. The review describes in three categories: wild fishes, captive cultured fishes, and fishes used as models in biological research. Some diseases of fishes may provide important insight on the basic mechanisms of diseases.
