Aquaculture biosecurity has been accepted as a mainstream approach to reducing the risk of infectious disease in aquaculture. FAO and OIE stress the importance of biosecurity in the sustainable development of aquaculture. Together, they are developing guidelines and recommendations to enhance aquaculture biosecurity systems at national and on-farm levels.
During our earlier training courses and webinars, participants expressed their interest in further courses in aquaculture biosecurity and related capacity building, technology, and modernisation of the industry. In response, the “Belt and Road” Training Base for Mariculture Technologies and FAO Reference Centre on Aquaculture Biosecurity and AMR in YSFRI (Yellow Sea Fisheries Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences), and NACA will co-host the Second Online Training Program of Mariculture Technology for the Asia-Pacific Region from 15 to 20 December 2020 via Zoom. The course will focus on aquaculture biosecurity and related technologies at the international, national, and on-farm levels. Lectures will be given by experts from FAO, OIE, NACA, YSFRI, and industry.
A Q&A session on “Implementation of Progressive Management Pathways to Improve Aquaculture Biosecurity (PMP/AB)” promoted by FAO at the national level and “Practice of biosecurity at the farm level and application of the PMP/AB approach” will be held during the course.
Participation is free but pre-registration is required via the link below. The agenda will be made available shortly soon.
