October 30, 2015

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Aquatic Animal Drug Approval Partnership (AADAP) have published on-line a booklet entitled, “Approved Drugs for Use in Aquaculture,” that lists all currently approved drugs for use on aquaculture species. The booklet, like their poster publication, describes how each drug may be legally used (e.g., dose, concentration, duration) and under what circumstances (i.e., the specific disease or conditions).
The booklet also contains examples of how to calculate the amount of each drug to use for a particular situation. Included within each example are the appropriate formulae and/or tables needed to calculate the dose or concentration of each drug for specific situations.
