Assessing the Inter-Relations Between Fish Health and Stock Status of the Main Commercial Fish Species

Abstract

This paper aims to show the importance of knowing the health status of fish populations in their natural environment and its influence on fish stocks at the Romanian coast. To assess the interrelationship between fish health status and the state of stocks, the following fish species: turbot, sprat, anchovies and horse mackerel were analysed from the pathological point of view. Pathological analyses performed between 2015 and 2017 revealed the presence of infections caused by bacteria of the genus Aeromonas and Vibrio and parasitic diseases Trichodinosis, Botriocephalosis and Nematodosis. The presence of these diseases in natural fish populations may represent a real danger to the state of existing stocks, but also to their evolution.
