11-Quarantine and health monitoring

The health status of the animals can have wide-reaching consequences for both the experiment and the facility staff, and should be discussed at an early stage. There will very likely be local or national legislation in place regulating these activities.

General principles
For fish researchers

General guidance for health and welfare monitoring of fish used in research is available, but there is a pressing need for more species-specific guidance.

Pathogens of concern to each study must be discussed and identified, with the establishment of a health monitoring programme which all facility users follow. This should include quarantine-release screening programmes, not just surface sanitising of  eggs. Users should be aware of the possible zoonotic risk.
