The effect of low stocking density on red sea bream iridoviral disease (RSIVD) in juvenile red sea bream was examined. In an experimental challenge test, in which the number of fish and the volume of the rearing space was set in three levels, low-density groups (2.1 or 2.2 kg/m3) showed significantly lower mortalities than medium- (4.2 kg/m3) and high-density groups (8.4 kg/m3).
