Our aim is to take care for fish health, render an exact diagnosis and create a treatment plan in collaboration with local veterinarians. We employ methods that represent the state-of-the-art in veterinary medicine and examine both living and dead fish.

Beyond this, we give advice to farmers on disease prevention.

The National Reference Laboratory for Fish Diseases is established in our clinic.
