World Health Organization's Five Keys to Safer Aquaculture Products to Protect Public Health

The Joint Institute for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (JIFSAN) has joined with the World Health Organization (WHO) in producing FIVE KEYS TO SAFER AQUACULTURE PRODUCTS TO PROTECT PUBLIC HEALTH.

The training manual is designed for use by health educators and aquaculture specialists conducting health and aquaculture training for small aquaculture producers who raise fish for themselves, their families, for sale in local markets or to larger distributors. The manual describes the key practices needed to ensure safer fish production, from where to place the ponds to post-harvest handling.

The manual is available for download on the WHO publications page.
