Nanotechnology Systems to Prevent Disease and Improve Healing of Aquatic Animals
Netting, tagging, and/or vaccination of shrimp or fish often result in increased stress and infections caused by opportunistic pathogens. Damaged epidermis or cuticle provides a portal of entry to potentially deadly infective agents that bind preferentially to injured cells. Recent advances in nanotechnology and computer-assisted scanning instrumentation now make it possible to quantify progress toward developing economical, nanoparticle-based systems that effectively treat handling-associated skin lesions.
