Technical Abstract: In 2009, the Alabama catfish industry experienced widespread mortality from infection by the bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila. As soon as pond water temperatures warmed above 26 degrees centigrade (80 degrees fahrenheit) in 2010, epidemics have again occurred across the industry. This talk, which is an update for AL catfish farmers, will present data that includes numbers of farms and ponds affected, clincial signs observed by farmers, and field efficacy of some treatments that have been applied.
