Aquaculture is emerging as the fastest growing food producing industry in the world and Tilapia fish plays a vital role in fulfilling the demand for fish food consumption. However the intensive culture of Tilapia fish led to the outbreaks of various bacterial diseases. Which directly affect the economic loss to the production of aquaculture. And it is estimated that industries at worldwide suffered the loss in billions of dollars annually. The antibiotics are used widely in the treatment of diseases in fishes. But due to excessive use of antibiotics the fishes led to the development of antibiotic- resistant pathogens. This doesn’t allow the fishes to be cured easily. So to overcome this problem we used Allium sativum as a phytochemical to treat the fishes so that the disease can be cured without any harmful effect. The extract is prepared from the garlic powder and then adds it to the feed. It automatically cure the fishes and protect them also from all kind of bacterial diseases.
