Targeted disease prophylaxis in European fish farming (TargetFish)

Start date: Oct 1, 2012, End date: Sep 30, 2017,

European aquaculture production provides direct employment to 65.000 people with a turnover of 3 billion €. However, the lack of authorised veterinary medicinal products and the consequent disease outbreaks in farmed fish species costs the sector 20% of the production value. The most appropriate method for disease control, both on economical and ethical grounds, is disease prevention by vaccinatio ...
