This study was performed to determine the disinfection efficacy of influent seawater by application of mechanical filtration and UV disinfection system (MFUVDS) in decreasing disease outbreak of juvenile olive flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus). Bacterial disinfection rate of influent seawater following the MFUVDS application was 99.27%. Mortalities of the juvenile reared for 4 months were 20~30% lower than those of the control (25.8%~34.9%).
