Drug Information Materials
Desk Reference Booklet
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Aquatic Animal Drug Approval Partnership Program, Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies – Fisheries and Water Resources Policy Committee’s Drug Approval Working Group and the American Fisheries Society’s Fish Culture and Fish Health Sections have published a small-format (approximately 7″ x 11 “) booklet listing all currently approved drugs for use on aquaculture species. The Desk-Reference booklet, like its sister 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 Desk-Reference 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 your specific situations.
