Carp Pox in Fish

Treatment

 

There is no treatment for carp pox infection. And while it may make the fish look more pleasant, the surgical removal of the lesions will not cure it of the virus.

 

Prevention

 

The only way to prevent the viral infection from spreading is to destroy the infected fish and its environment.
