These diseases are of significant importance to aquatic animal health or to the Canadian economy. Anyone who owns or works with aquatic animals and knows of or suspects a reportable disease is required by law to notify the CFIA. If a reportable disease were to be detected, the CFIA would begin an investigation.
Facilities working with animal or zoonotic pathogens must comply with the Containment Standards for Facilities Handling Aquatic Animal Pathogens.
