« Fundamentals of operational farm health Management in Aquaculture »

Under the "One Health" perspective, to support the sustainable development of aquaculture production for human consumption and improve the global level of aquaculture competencies, WOAH asked WVEPAH to develop a training and certification program for aquaculture health and biosecurity field experts. These experts will receive certification recognizing their ability to work locally at farm level, at watershed level, and regional and national levels.

They will acquire the ability to become key auditors and support farmers for biosecurity, disease management, prevention, surveillance, and product quality. They will also be internationally recognized in the Aquaculture network as trainers for trainers.

The certification is granted by international institutions:  Montréal University for quality control and academic diploma delivery, and the WOAH for worldwide recognition. Thus, certified professionals are de facto awarded as international experts.

WVEPAH wants to give expert and trainees the tools to identify the limiting factors and bring solutions in the field

Experts will learn about:

  • Pathogens, but not only...
  • Species, specificity & physiology
  • Farming structures and environmental condition
  • Feed (nutrition) and feeding
  • Biosecurity and hygiene
  • Farmers

At farm level, watersheld level, national and international levels
