The present condition of aquacultural industry is influenced by the economical losses due to various aquacultural diseases causing fish mortality. The present review provides benchmark information related to application of bacteriophages in aquacultural industries over available traditional treatment procedures like antibiotics and chemotherapy. The traditional methods are mostly less advantageous due to development of resistance, non-specific targeting of bacteria including intestinal microflora, etc. In short here we discuss the interaction between fish, bacteria and their phages in order to have an alternate treatment method for the pathogens responsible for aquacultural diseases.
