Biosecurity in Aquaculture, Part 1: An Overview

This factsheet by the Southern Regional Aquaculture Center (SRAC) gives an overview of biosecurity in aquaculture. Biosecurity in aquaculture consists of practices that minimize the risk of introducing an infectious disease and spreading it to the animals at a facility. The risk is that diseased animals or infectious agents will leave a facility and spread to other sites and other susceptible species. These practices also reduce stress to the animals, thus making them less susceptible to disease.
