OIE Collaborating Centre for information on aquatic animal diseases


The (World Organisation for Animal Health) Collaborating Centre for Information on Aquatic Diseases was established in May 1997 at the Cefas' Weymouth laboratory with a mandate to provide National Delegates of member countries with information from the International Database on Aquatic Animal Diseases developed at the laboratory.

It was subsequently decided to make the database freely available via the internet so that it can provide benefits to a wider audience, including veterinarians, scientists and regulators with interest in aquatic animal health, as well as universities and students.

The development and maintenance of this database is funded entirely by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), UK who has made it publicly available on-line through the Collaborating Centre.
