Regulatory Research Activities

  • Application of OIE Aquatic Animal Health Standards
  • Definition / scope of susceptible species in endemic waters- e.g., MSX; Bonamia
  • Differentiation of pathogenic vs. non-pathogenic strains- e.g., VHS; ISA
  • Sensitivity / specificity of targeted surveillance protocols in non-endemic species and environments (validation)- e.g., WSV
  • Pathogen inactivation standards (disinfection)- All

Federal – Provincial – Industry

Responsibilities

Nationally Reportable Diseases (Federal lead)Responsible for reportable/exotic diseases posing significant threats to international or inter-provincial trade and/or aquatic resources; Notifiable disease list (subject to review)

Regional Diseases (Provincial lead)Responsible for endemic diseases posing significant risks for losses; require active control measures

Production Diseases (Aquaculture Industry Mgt. lead)Responsible for management and biosecurity of infections that can be managed via husbandry, therapy, circumvention
