On 2 February the Fisheries Subsecretariat (SUBPESCA) modified a 2001 decree that regulates the measures of protection, control and eradication of high-risk diseases of hydrobiological species in aquaculture.

SUBPESCA added the following to Article 12 of Decree No. 319 (2001): “The heads of the farming centres will have to inform the [National Fisheries] Service monthly of the use of vaccines, antimicrobials and all other types of therapeutic treatments. Also, the heads will have to inform, as the previously mentioned sanitary programmes are established, the results of the treatments applied.”

In addition, this text was included in Article 16: “the Service will have to issue a report annually that provides an account of the use of antimicrobials in aquaculture. Said report will be public and at the disposal of those interested in the Internet site of the Service.”

At the end of Article 24-bis, it added: “Sowing will have to be to a final number. The splitting of units between farming centre cages is prohibited, except when it is put forth by resolution of the Service as an emergency measure for the control of a high-risk disease.”

Meanwhile it replaced the final subsection of Article 24 with: “The cleaning and disinfection demanded in the present regulation should be undertaken in accordance with the respective general sanitary programme, by legal or natural persons” that satisfy several requirements.

Among said requisites:

  • To employ trained personnel whose work will have to be supervised by an authorised land technician;
  • To possess equipment and materials to carry out the procedures of disinfection set out in the sanitary programmes;
  • Those dependencies that offer cleaning and disinfection services must comply with the following specifications: Labour dependencies of exclusive use; solid floor and wall construction, washable and non-porous; connection to the sewage system network; to have cold and hot running water; to have an exclusive room to store disinfected equipment and materials; to have a warehouse where the detergents and disinfectants are stored.

In the cases in which the washing, cleaning and disinfection are done in farming centres without the provision of third-party services, a professional responsible for the activities must be employed.

Also, it highlights that the equipment and implements used during the cleaning and disinfection will have to be washed, rinsed and disinfected with fresh water upon the conclusion of each task.

Plus, a registry must be maintained of the procedures conducted, of the personnel involved as well as a file of the tributary documents for the purchase of detergents and disinfectants, which will be at the disposal of the National Fisheries Service.

As soon as the tasks of cleaning, washing and disinfection are finalised, the supplier of services will have to submit a foliated certificate and in triplicate, issued by the technical person in charge.

Furthermore, 2nd and 3rd subsections were added to Article 57 with the following text: “In the case of therapeutic treatments, their application will require a previous clinical diagnosis carried out by the respective professional. Also, prior to the application of antimicrobials, samples will have to be obtained for a later confirmation of the diagnosis by means of laboratory analysis. The application of antimicrobials will be able to be carried out pending the results of the analysis. The application of antimicrobials with prophylactic aims is prohibited.”
