Abstract : Several common diseases of coastal fishes should play an important role in aquacultures that utilize dredged material containment sites. Circumstances that develop from increased stock density should favor crustacean parasites and parasites with simple life cycles. Climate extremes and abrupt changes are apt to predispose microbial disease and water enrichment will favor oxygen shortage and epiboint fouling. Potential corrective measures are noted. (Author)
