Internal Factors That Can Affect Fish Disease



Description: After understanding the external factor that can affect fish disease, it is also useful to know about the internal factors contributing to fish disease.

In the previous article, we have discussed the external factors that can affect fish disease. Contrary to those factors that encompass elements such as fish environment, treatment, and other living organisms accompanying the cultured fish, internal factors that can affect fish disease are mostly sourced from within the fish.

The understanding of such internal factors can provide insights on how to mitigate the adverse effect on the cultured fish. Some of the notable internal factors that can affect fish disease are genetic disorders, endocrine disorders, and immune deficiency.
