The purpose of this Manual of Diagnostic Tests for Aquatic Animals (Aquatic Manual) is to provide a uniform
approach to the detection of the diseases listed in the OIE Aquatic Code, so that the requirements for health
certification in connection with disease prevention and control programmes, and trade in aquatic animals and
aquatic animal products can be met.
Although many publications exist on the detection and control of aquatic animal diseases, the Aquatic Manual is a
key and unique document describing the methods that should be applied to the OIE-listed diseases in aquatic
animal health laboratories all over the world, thus increasing efficiency and promoting improvements in aquatic
animal health world-wide. The requirements published in this Aquatic Manual are recognised as international
standards by the WTO.
