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.
