Global warming and associated climate change has now become a reality and therefore concerted efforts are needed to develop suitable mitigation strategies for any adverse impacts. Expected higher water temperature conditions due to global warming are likely to create favorable climate conditions for the growth of disease causing organisms and this may probably cause a rise in disease occurrences. Similarly alterations in other sensitive water quality parameters such as ammonia, air and water temperature may have pronounced effect on feed utilization efficiency, growth, and breeding and even on the sensory qualities of the cultured fish species. Concerted efforts in aquaculture research to reduce the vulnerability of aquaculture due to the impact of climate change are therefore vital to make aquaculture more resilient.
