Emerging Bacterial Pathologies in Mediterranean Mariculture

Monique Mancuso*

Aquaculture is emerging as the fastest growing food-producing industry in the world because of the increasing demand for food fish consumption. The intensive culture of fish has led to outbreaks of various bacterial diseases, causing economic losses to the aquaculture industry worldwide [1,2]. In the last years in the Mediterranean basin is registering a growing attention to some emerging bacterial fish pathogens.

Cytochrome P450 as a Biomarker for Pollutant Exposure in Aquatic Organisms

Abeer Abdel-Wahab Ibrahim Hassanin *

Monitors or early warning premeditate to identify and define areas of contamination could be extremely important in analysis of groundwater aquifers, surface water lakes, reservoirs, rivers, and oceanic systems. The need for early detection and assessment of the impacts of pollution in the aquatic environment has led to the development of biomarkers. A biomarker can be defined as a measurable response at any level of biological organization that can be related to an impact of contaminants.
