Buoyancy disorders in fish - Dr Richmond Loh 1 CPD Points


Buoyancy disorders are not uncommon in various fish species. Hyperbuoyancy (positively buoyant) leads to fish floating at the water surface, and hypobuoyancy (negatively buoyant) results in fish sinking to the tank floor. We explore the reasons that make fish float or sink, such as swim bladder disease, gut pathology and many other causes; the sequelae to such conditions, and we open up discussion on the various methods to treat and prevent this condition.
