FAO, the World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH), NACA and partners have developed the “Progressive Management Pathway for Aquaculture Biosecurity” (PMP/AB), as an extension of the progressive control pathways concept used for controlling major livestock and zoonotic diseases. It focuses on building management capacity through combined bottom-up and top-down approaches with strong stakeholder engagement. PMP/AB aims to promote the application of risk management at the producer and industry levels, as part of a coordinated national approach.
The FAO COFI/Sub-Committee on Aquaculture has recommended the establishment of a Technical Working Group of the PMP/AB, which now serves as the main implementation mechanism under the auspices of the Project on Responsible Use of Fisheries and Aquaculture Resources for Sustainable Development.
NACA and FAO are collaboratively working on the development of the Regional Aquatic Organism Health Strategy (RAOHS) to support the implementation of PMP/AB in the Asia-Pacific region. The Regional Technical Working Group (RTWG) for PMP/AB will be established to undertake the following tasks:
