Using chemicals in aquaculture

You can use chemicals on your aquaculture farm to prevent disease, treat animals and control pests. Chemicals may also be used to treat aquaculture products during processing to preserve the product.

The use of agricultural chemicals (such as herbicides and pesticides) and veterinary chemicals (such as animal treatments) is regulated, so it's important to understand your responsibilities when using chemical products.

This guide explains the requirements for using chemicals safely in aquaculture production.
