OIE Global Conference on Aquatic Animal Health

Panama City, Panama

28-30 June 2011

OIE Aquatic Animal Health Standards

Barry Hill

President

OIE Aquatic Animal Health Standards Commission

slide2

Aquaculture has been experiencing a boom since the mid-1970s, sustaining an average annual growth rate of around 9% until a recent slight fall back.

Today it continues to expand in almost all regions of the world and is the fastest growing food animal production sector globally.

There is substantial and growing international trade in live aquatic animals and their products.

slide3

A detailed analysis of aquaculture production and wild capture fisheries is published every 2 years by FAO.

slide7

However, infectious diseases are causing major aquaculture production losses in many countries, even having a significant negative impact on some national economies

slide8

In some countries, the rapid increase in aquaculture output has been based on species diversification which has led to an increase in the demand for introduction and transfers of live non-indigenous aquatic animals, some of which have introduced new diseases with them.

slide9
For example, outbreaks of infectious salmon anaemia (ISA) in Chile since 2007 have had a devastating impact on the salmon farming industry, causing a massive reduction in production and in export volumes.

Economic losses of many $100 millions.

High numbers of farms closed and large numbers of job losses.

Will take years to recover.

A national disaster.

Imported (from ??)

slide10
The main aim of OIE is to ensure the sanitary safety of international trade in live animals and their products.
  • This includes providing standards and guidelines on the health measures to be used by the Aquatic Animal Health Services of importing and exporting countries to prevent the transfer of agents pathogenic for aquatic animals, while avoiding unjustified trade barriers.
slide12

The OIE standards applicable to international trade in aquatic animals and their products are laid out in the OIE Aquatic Animal Health Code and in the OIE Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals.

slide13

The OIE standards and guidance in the Aquatic Code and Aquatic Manual aim to reduce disease risks

slide14
Developing the OIE standards for aquatic animals is the role of the Aquatic Animal Health Standards Commission

slide17
With advances in scientific knowledge, the Aquatic Health Standards Commission prepares draft texts for new chapters, or revises existing chapters of the Aquatic Code and the Aquatic Manual with the input of internationally renowned independent experts, OIE ad hoc groups, and expertise at the many OIE Reference Laboratories for aquatic animal diseases.
  • These drafts are further refined with input from national experts of OIE Members before being finalised and presented to the National Delegates at the OIE General Session in May each year for adoption.

Aquatic Code Chapter 1.2

Article 1.2.1.

  • Criteria for listing an aquatic animal disease

Article 1.2.2.

  • Criteria for listing an emergingaquatic animal disease
criteria for listing an aquatic animal disease
Criteria for listing an aquatic animal disease

A disease proposed for listing should meet all the relevant parameters set for each of the criteria;

Parameters that support a listing include:

  • Consequences
  • Spread and
  • Diagnosis

Such proposals should be accompanied by a case definition for the disease.

for the purposes of the aquatic code
For the purposes of the Aquatic Code

An emerging disease means a newly recognised infection resulting from the evolution or change of an existing pathogenic agent, a known infection spreading to a new geographical area or population, or a previously unrecognised pathogenic agent or disease diagnosed for the first time and which has a significant impact on aquatic animal populations or public health.

chapter 1 3 oie list of aquatic animal diseases
Chapter 1.3.OIE list of aquatic animaldiseases
  • The list is reviewed annually by the AAHSC and recommendations for deletions and additions are proposed to OIE Members for adoption
  • Notification and reporting requirements apply to all listed diseases and any new emerging diseases.
slide32
26 aquatic animals diseases listed by OIE (2011)
    • 2 diseases of amphibians
    • 8 diseases of crustaceans
    • 9 diseases of fish
    • 7 disease of molluscs
oie list of aquatic animal diseases
OIE list of aquatic animal diseases
  • A key purpose of listing a disease in the Aquatic Code is to ensure transparency of the aquatic animal health status world-wide, by obliging Member Countries to report its occurrence to OIE.
  • The OIE collates and disseminates the information received in reports on the status of those listed diseases in Member Countries (WAHIS and WAHID).
slide34

Obligation to notify and report

disease detection to OIE

disease notification

“Disease” notification

In this context, it is important to understand that the circumstances for regular as well as immediate notification of aquatic animal diseases do not require the presence of clinical disease or mortality.

The Aquatic Code clarifies in Article 1.1.2.4:

“This means that the presence of an infectious agent, even in the absence of clinical disease, should be reported.”
