AIS-HACCP for Aquaculture and Baitfish Operations

Although baitfish and aquaculture industries pose no or a very low risk of spreading aquatic invasive species (AIS), the industries have been proactive in implementing systems to help ensure that any potential risk is minimized. Without adequate risk assessment of individual operations, regulations could be imposed which would unnecessarily negatively impact the viability of these industries and still not effectively reduce the risk of spreading AIS.

Antibiotic Resistance in Aquaculture

Antimicrobial resistance poses a serious threat to human health, and there is much public concern regarding antibiotic use in aquaculture as a possible contributing factor. Regardless of whether antibiotic use in aquaculture is functionally related to the development of resistance in
important human pathogens, antimicrobial resistance is relevant in that it may reduce the effectiveness of the limited treatment options available for fish health management.

Understanding the basics of fish health is the first step towards saving your fish. This presentation will provide aquaculture producers with a broad overview of fish health topics, including signs of distress and disease, DIY diagnostics, when to call the veterinarian, and the process and policy of fish health inspections.

Regulatory Costs of U.S. Aquaculture Business

Many aquaculture producers and scientists have long pointed to an excessively burdensome regulatory environment in the U.S. as a constraint to growth and development of U.S. aquaculture. However, there has been little research done to determine the magnitude of the specific costs incurred by aquaculture producers in the U.S. as they comply with regulations. This 1-hour webinar will present results of the first-ever study to measure the specific costs of regulations on one segment of U.S. aquaculture.
