Author(s): Rosidah, Walim Lili and Fittrie Mellianawaty Pratiwy

Abstract: One of the biggest losses for fish farmers is the presence of disease attacks, whether caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi. Bacterial disease is often treated with antibiotics. The use of antibiotics for a long time and in inappropriate doses will result in resistance to pathogenic bacteria, accumulation of antibiotics in the aquatic environment and fish bodies which is certainly dangerous for human health and other aquatic biota. The use of herbal ingredients is the right strategy, because it is relatively safer and cheaper to treat disease. Morinda citrifolia is one of the herbs that has been widely used to treat various diseases in humans such as diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, heart disease, relieve digestive disorders, headaches and fever. M. citrifolia's ability to treat various diseases is based on its phytochemical content and pharmacological properties of M. citrifolia. Alkaloids, flavonoids, tannins, saponins, steroids, phenols and terpenoids, glycosides, carbohydrates and coumarine and scopoletin are secondary metabolites contained in M. citrifolia which have antibacterial, immunostimulant, medicinal and growth effects. So the purpose of this article is to explain M. citrifolia to maintain fish health. Based on the above studies, M. citrifolia has the potential to be used as an alternative supplement for the health of various fish, because it has antibacterial, treatment, immunostimulant and growth effects.
