In this article all diseases of shellfish that are regulated by the law in Republic Croatia are elaborated. These diseases are iridovirosis (gill disease), bonamiosis, microcystosis, haplosporidiosis and perkinsosis (N. N. 179/04). They are also cited in the International Bureau for Epizootics (O I E , 2004) as diseases that must be reported if are noticed in some area (except iridovirosis which is cited as disease of a potential international importance). Upper mentioned diseases cause important lowering of shellfish production in the world and there are impossible to eradicate and to cure.
