Abstract:

Even though fish culture has expanded on a large scale worldwide, disease out breaks have threatened to decrease the profitability of this industry. Among the various infections, Achlya species appears to be one of the most common fungal infections. Hence, the present study was attempted to analyse the common Achlya species that are found in the fresh water systems of eutrophic culture pond in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu. Results indicate that there were four species of Achlya. Among the various fishes, carps appeared to be most prone to multiple infections of Achlya while Clarias batrachus the least prone to infections. Among the various Achlya species, A. prolifera dominated and was isolated in all the species of fish.
