The purpose of the 8th Edition of the Aquatic Manual is to provide a uniform approach to the detection of the diseases listed in the Aquatic Animal Health Code, so that the requirements for health certification in connection with trade in aquatic animals and aquatic animal products can be met. It includes bibliographical references and a list of the OIE Reference Laboratories for amphibian, crustacean, fish and mollusc diseases.
Although many publications exist on the detection and control of aquatic animal diseases, the Aquatic Manual is a key and unique document describing the methods that can be applied to the OIE-listed diseases in aquatic animal health laboratories all over the world, thus increasing efficiency and promoting improvements in aquatic animal health world-wide. The requirements published in this Aquatic Manual are recognised as international standards by the World Trade Organization.
