The involvement of veterinarians in the aquaculture sector is vital; being essential in the investigation and treatment of diseases, epidemiological analysis, nutrition, feeding and welfare of aquatic animals. Veterinarians can advise and work with producers to promote the health and welfare of their aquatic animals. Veterinarians are a vital link in ensuring human health through controlling food safety and food security, similarly as with other food producing species.

FVE recommends strongly investing in the growing potential of Europe’s aquaculture.
