Guide to Using Drugs, Biologics & Other Chemicals in Aquaculture

Guide to Using Drugs, Biologics & Other Chemicals in Aquaculture | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

"All aquaculture operations have occasional demand for drugs, biologics, and other chemicals, collectively referred to as “regulated products”. The Guide to Using Drugs, Biologics, and Other Chemicals in Aquaculture was developed by the Fish Culture Section WGADCB as a comprehensive introduction to the use of regulated products in aquaculture and a resource for fisheries professionals. The Guide includes updated information on aquaculture drugs and contacts for providing feedback. A companion treatment calculator is available in both Excel 97-2003 (.xls) and Excel 2010 (.xlsx) formats. These tools are indispensable for those in need of detailed information regarding the legal and judicious use of these products in aquaculture."

Feds take aim at fish imports, but local shrimpers stand to gain little | Aquaculture Directory

Feds take aim at fish imports, but local shrimpers stand to gain little | Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
A federal agency will soon enforce a longstanding law that requires nations that export shrimp, fish and other seafood to the U.S. to have the same regulations to protect marine creatures from being caught inadvertently. 

But local shrimpers say they expect the rule, published Wednesday by NOAA Fisheries, to have little impact on the wave of cheaper imports that for years have made it difficult for them to compete.
