ORGANIZED BY HIPRA AND IN COLLABORATION WITH AQUALIFE

A special thanks to Aquafarm for the organizational support.

Fish as other farm animals, just like people, are more susceptible to different pathogens, specially bacteria and viruses, when they are under stressful situations. Therefore, it makes sense to protect fish from these threats whenever possible. Reducing the burden of disease and the associated treatments mean animals can enjoy better health, translated into better conversion ratios, contributing to the farm economics and the development of the aquaculture sector.

HIPRA invites participants to a professional update on fish vaccination and its benefits, where AQUALIFE will be sharing their wide practical experience.
