The Pimenta extract composition and treatment of this invention are effective for a broad range of bacterial and fungal diseases that typically afflict fish and other aquatic animals. Fish diseases that may be treated in accordance with this invention include bacterial fish diseases, such as fin and tail rot, mouth fungus (often caused by the bacterium Flavobacterium columnaris); fungal fish diseases (such as those caused by microorganisms of the genera Saprolegnia and Achyle) and the like. Many fish diseases, it should be noted, are caused by different bacterial or fungal pathogens that often exhibit similar symptoms, so identification of a specific bacterial or fungal pathogen is not usually possible from mere visual inspection of the symptoms on the fish.
Since the Pimenta extract treatment of this invention appears to have broad-spectrum effectiveness against many diseases affecting fish and other aquatic animals, precise identification of specific bacterial or fungal pathogens causing the disease is not usually necessary.
The Pimenta extract composition and treatment of this invention also enhance skin and tissue healing and promote such healing in injured fish or other aquatic animals. Common fish injuries include those resulting from netting, handling or confinement in closed or crowded environments, like shipping containers or holding tanks, in particular, injuries, such as wounds, lacerations, bites from other fish or animals, abrasions, scrapes, bums and other similar damage to skin or other tissues.
The Pimenta extract treatment and composition of this invention are remarkably effective in curing such difficult-to-treat fish diseases, like ragged fins and bacterial dropsy (early stages).
The Pimenta extract composition and treatment method of this invention may also be used as a prophylactic or hygienic treatment, to prevent disease-susceptible fish or other aquatic animals from becoming afflicted, or for immediately treating injury-susceptible fish or other aquatic animals when they become injured.
As with all medicaments, continuous long-term treatment is not generally recommended, since it creates the risk of developing resistant strains of pathogenic microorganisms that may not be able to be successfully controlled with the medicament.
