Book your room for the Bozeman Workshop!

If you are planning on attending the 23rd Annual Aquaculture Drug Approval Coordination Workshop and haven’t made lodging accommodations, do so now. The block of rooms at the Best Western Gran Tree (Workshop host hotel) reserved at the government rate is now sold out. They do have 15 rooms still available at $189/night. Other nearby hotels are still available (Holiday Inn, Days Inn) but they are filling up fast!

Upcoming workshop will help answer your questions.

Do you have questions about the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) rule change? Or, maybe how to navigate through the newly-revised U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards webpage?  If so, help is on the horizon.

These issues will be addressed at the upcoming 23rd annual Aquaculture Drug Approval Coordination Workshop.  Presentations followed by a demonstration and/or panel discussion on changes to the on-line DHS Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism System and the VFD rule change are scheduled for Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning, respectively.  Continue reading

If you could add one drug to the fish medicine chest, what would that drug be?

Most people involved in fish culture know that the fish medicine chest has plenty of room for more drugs. There only nine approved for use on fish in the United States, which limits options when fish have a bacterial infection, a parasitic infestation, need some help with spawning, need to be sedated or anesthetized, or marked for later identification.

Our question to you:  What drug would you like to see in the fish medicine chest and what would you use it for? Or, If the drug is in the medicine chest but just not approved for what you need, what would you like it approved for? The AADAP staff will review all responses provided and take them into consideration when developing the annual research work plan or when talking with fish drug companies concerning new fish drugs that may need a sponsor or U.S. representative.

Review the listing of drugs approved for use on fish by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
