Approved Aquaculture Drugs Guide Published for US Fish Farmers

22 October 2015, at 1:00a.m.

US - US fish farmers can now make use of a new quick reference guide which provides information on all approved drugs for aquaculture.

The guide was published by the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s Aquatic Animal Drug Approval Partnership Program, Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies – Fisheries and Water Resources Policy Committee’s Drug Approval Working Group and the American Fisheries Society’s Fish Culture and Fish Health Sections.

The Desk-Reference booklet lists all currently approved drugs for use on aquaculture species. It also describes how each drug may be legally used (e.g., dose, concentration, duration) and under what circumstances (i.e., the specific disease or conditions).

Examples are also given on how to calculate the amount of each drug to use for a particular situation. Included within each example are the appropriate formulae and/or tables needed to calculate the dose or concentration of each drug for your specific situations.
