Board Acts on Aquatic Medicine-Related Proposals

US - Changes to the charge of the AVMA Aquatic Veterinary Medicine Committee have been approved by the Executive Board along with an extensively revised policy on the judicious use of antimicrobials in aquatic animals.

The committee recommended the changes to itself to keep pace with the rapidly developing discipline of aquatic veterinary medicine and to assist the committee in addressing issues of direct importance to the veterinary profession.

The addition of "Invited Representatives" to the AqVMC description is an attempt to identify governmental and nongovernmental organisations that regularly send a representative to council and committee meetings at their own expense.

These invited representatives are not voting members of the committee, but provide input to the committee on many issues.
