Aquaculture production is now exceeding fisheries production in total seafood supply. Aquaculture, through intensification and husbandry practices, generate numerous stressful events, which may result from water deterioration (acute or chronic exposure to reduced levels of dissolved oxygen and/or increased levels of carbon dioxide, ammonia, nitrite) and/or handling (vaccination, transfer, transport, grading, ambient noise).
