Parasite Monitoring

Regular parasite monitoring is essential to ensure that the overall health of the Cobia is maximised. Parasites occur naturally, both in the wild and in farmed systems. It is essential that regular testing occurs to detect and control the spread of parasites.

Health issues relating to parasitic activity include:

  • Poor Growth
  • Increased Stress
  • Poor FCR
  • Abnormal Behaviour
  • Changes to physical attributes
