Care for healthy aquaculture
Farm visits on call for autopsies and on site diagnostic work as well as fish sampling for further laboratory examination. A fully equipped diagnostic laboratory is in operation in order to complete the necessary necropsy, microbiology, parasitology (microscopy) and histology examinations of the samples as well as molecular qPCR and RT-qPCR testing for prominent pathogens.
Regular monitoring of the health status and growth performance of the fish stocks and the overall fish farm hygiene.
Special attention is focused upon fish welfare leading to higher productivity and financial gain through optimal fish performance and enhanced disease resistance.
Evaluation of the environmental sensitivities on each site, the stock management procedures and feeding policies in view to optimising the growth performance of the fish, ensuring the most productive use of resources and inputs and maintaining minimum negative environmental impacts.
Consultancy and training as regards the appropriate hygiene and disease prevention strategies tailored to the particular needs of any hatchery or on-growing farm.
On-farm support for the administration of vaccines and staff training on vaccination techniques.
(Pioneering work on sea-bass and rainbow trout vaccination since 1993, proved that major diseases may be prevented in Greek marine and fresh water farms with the suitable vaccination strategies and vaccines.)
Active encouragement of the co-operation and the flow of information among fish farmers, for all matters concerning fish health, particularly those farmers sharing the same river or bay resources.
Evaluation of the finished, harvested product as regards fat content and overall quality. Inspections of packing plants hygiene and the maintenance of the "cool chain".
