fish food

Hi something sparked my mind recently. Suppose a fish has dropsy or some type of disease that's untreatable and its too late. If you were to feed this sick fish to say a bigger fish would that fish then contract the disease as well? And the same for crawfish. Can they catch fish deases?

disease

crawfishes cannot become diseased from fishes but they can be carriers of protazoan parasites...oh and naturaly the diseased fish would release its pathogens into the water as well as transfering the preveious medication that was absorbed...not recomending feeding diseased fish to other fishes...

Actually one more question. Are there certain dieases that if a fish was in a tank they wouldn't transfer to others? Of course many diseases are treatable. Just curious
