Bacterial diseases like columnaris caused by Flavobacterium columnare, result in huge economic loss to aquaculture farmers. Although there are commercially available vaccines and antibiotics to control bacterial diseases, they are proven to be inefficient. Moreover, antibiotics lead to acquired resistance in bacteria, and the drug residual in fish, resulting in tight regulations for their usage. This calls for new alternative solutions that can be safe and cost-effective to prevent and treat fis...

Bacterial diseases like columnaris caused by Flavobacterium columnare, has huge economic impact on aquaculture industry. Proven the low efficacy of vaccines and tight regulations with antibiotic usage, there is a need for alternative therapeutics. We have previously found that methanolic extracts (50 mg/ml) from eleven herbs and spices had bactericidal effects against Flavobacterium columnare (3 × 108 CFU/ml). In the present study we determined the minimum inhibitory concentrations of all the el...
