TA 7. Aquatic Animal Health & Welfare
Chair: Hamish Rodger – VetAqua International (Ireland)
Facilitator: Randolph Richards – IoA - Stirling University (UK)

"By 2030, further improvement in aquatic animal health and welfare in European aquaculture will produce high quality, robust animals - resulting in increased productivity that builds on environmental and welfare standards"
Identified KEY GOALS:
- Improve fish health and welfare by increasing the understanding of host pathogen interactions and to have access to effective vaccines and immunomodulators.
- Apply epidemiological principles to minimise the threat of existing, emerging and exotic diseases.
- Use and develop best practice to optimise efficacy of treatments and prevention methods.
- Measure welfare/stress and understand its consequences if compromised in order to incorporate welfare as core component of production management.
