Fish and Aquaculture

Additional Guidance

  • Similar biosecurity principles apply to farmed fish as for other farmed animals, but many serious contagious fish diseases threaten wild fish as well as farmed fish
  • Special care is needed when working at a fish farm intake because of increased risk of disease spread to the wild
  • Sampling should begin downstream and work upstream
  • There are additional risks presented by equipment such as boats, with extra care needed regarding cleaning and disinfection
