Ictalurus punctatus (Channel catfish) with fin rot, ulcer, lordosis and scoliosis were investigated. It was concluded that all are affected by nutritional deficiencies. Flexibacter columnaris and Aeromonas hydrophila were isolated and are considerate opportunistic pathogens in these conditions. Disease was confirmed with histological and hematological analysis.
