12:00 - 16:00Seminar: Between Scylla and Chraybdis - Fish health under pressureOrganized by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, SERNEPECA, Chile and the Norwegian Veterinary Institute.

In all animal productions health is a fundamental prerequisite for success, both in terms of production costs, animal welfare, sustainability and the trust of the consumer.

Today’s production of salmon and seatrout is an industrialized animal production with farms containing millions of individual fishes. The holding of so many individuals in a limited space exceeds any other modern animal production of to day.

To meet the challenges in such an industrial production modern technology is essential. Many problems have been slowed as a result of research and development.
Today the marked for farmed salmon seems to be unlimited. This leads to a push in the development of new technology to increase the production and meet to days challenges, in Norway sea lice, in Chile infection with the bacterium Piscirichettsia salmonis.
In this seminar, we address the question whether we, in our efforts to increase in the production, are focusing on good management and good fish health. If not, the progress can be challenged by new big problems, that might arise.
