Aquatic Animal Health Standards Commission (Aquatic Animals Commission)

Aquatic Animals Commission and reports

Founded in 1960, this Commission compiles information on diseases of amphibians, crustaceans, fish and molluscs and on methods used to control these diseases. The Commission produces the Aquatic Animal Health Code (the "Aquatic Code") and the Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals (the "Aquatic Manual"). The Commission also organises scientific meetings on diverse topics of importance to aquaculture. The Commission is elected by the World Assembly of Delegates of the OIE for a 3-year term.
