An interview with Edmund Peeler, PhD, principal epidemiologist at the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas).
Pangasius farmers in Vietnam generally view vaccination in a positive light and are concerned about antibiotic use, although further work is required to ensure sustainable practices are widely implemented, new research led by University of Stirling suggests.
The key to the continued growth of the pangasius industry is being more innovative in solving its main fish health, quality and sustainability challenges.
Vietnam’s pangasius sector is an aquaculture phenomenon. Worth US $2 billion a year in exports alone, this fast-growing and cheap-to-produce freshwater fish has quickly become one of the most consumed seafoods in the world.
