Aquaculture and Aquatic Animals
NOTE: For live fish for
aquaculture, including ornamental fish, a voluntary monitoring at the
exporting establishment must be active for at least two years, with at least
one sampling/year performed by an APHIS-accredited veterinarian, using an
assumed pathogen prevalence of 5% for determining the numbers of fish to sample.
Samples must be tested in a laboratory using assays that have been approved by
APHIS for the aquatic pathogens (if applicable to the species involved) that
are listed in the health certificates.
