Aquatic Animal Diseases and Human Health

"There are some fish diseases and infections that can be transmitted from fish, and the water in which they are cultured, to humans. Although the infection of humans with fish pathogens is a relatively unusual event, it is a health risk that needs to be recognised by fish farmers and other people who handle and/or consume farmed seafood. The incidence of transmission of disease from fish to humans is dependant upon several factors including the type of organism (viral, parasitic or bacterial), the susceptibility of the host (immuno-compromised individuals, presence of open wounds) and environmental factors (equality of the water, depth of penetration of fish spines). Infections or infestations of animals that can be transmitted to humans are called zoonoses. Although cases of human disease arising from fish and shellfish are rare in Australia, there are a few `fish diseases' that workers in the aquaculture and fishing industries need to be conscious of when handling or processing fish."
