Today, ultrasonographic examination is used in the sex discrimination of fish and in the control of the development of the gonads, eggs and sperm of the fish before fertilization. Tissue elasticity and density, which also helps the eating quality of fish, can also be determined by ultrasound. In addition, the most important is the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis of diseases. Especially in the spleen, liver and kidneys; It helps in the examination of swelling caused by granulomatous, fungal, bacterial and parasitic diseases, in the detection of anatomical disorders and in the general control of internal organs, by applying ultrasound quickly and reliably without any stress and harm to the fish.

In addition, the fact that ultrasound is a natural feature of dolphins, which is a marine mammal, can be said to be a kind of imitation of nature. The usage area of ultrasound is increasing day by day.

In this article, studies on the use of ultrasound in fish are reviewed.
