Managing disease in aquaculture farms

Restrictions have been imposed on the Logan and Albert rivers following the detection of white spot disease in prawns. Find out more information and report anything unusual to Biosecurity Queensland on 13 25 23.

Each part of an aquaculture production system has an impact on the health of aquatic animals. It's important to understand the role each part plays so you can prevent and manage disease in your farm.

Putting in place good animal husbandry practices and a health management program will help you respond quickly and appropriately to a potential disease incident.

This guide outlines the steps you can take to prevent disease, your responsibilities in reporting disease and the process you need to follow if you suspect disease in your farm.
