World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) Resources
Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals 2009
The purpose of this manual is to provide a uniform approach to the detection of the diseases listed in the OIE Aquatic Animal Health Code, so that the requirements for health certification in connection with trade in aquatic animals and aquatic animal products can be met. It includes bibliographical references and a list of the OIE Reference Laboratories for amphibian, crustacean, fish and molluscan diseases.
Aquatic Animal Health Code 2009
The aim of the Aquatic Animal Health Code is to assure the sanitary safety of international trade in aquatic animals (amphibians, crustaceans, fish and molluscs) and their products. This is achieved through the detailing of health measures to be used by Competent Authorities of importing and exporting countries to avoid the transfer of agents pathogenic for animals or humans, while avoiding unjustified sanitary barriers. The Aquatic Code is published annually in English, Spanish and French.
