National Peer-review Meeting on Guidelines on Defining Potential Exposure and Associated Biological Effects from Aquaculture Pest and Pathogen Treatments: Anti-Sea Lice Bath Treatments in the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick; November 2-3, 2011

Chairpersons: J. Parsons and I. Burgetz


Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s (DFO) Aquaculture Science Branch held a national peer-review advisory process November 2-3, 2011 at the St. Andrews Biological Station in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. The purpose of the meeting was to review and provide advice to the DFO Aquaculture Management Directorate in support of regulatory and policy decision making related to pest and pathogen management in aquaculture (see Appendix 1 for Terms of Reference). Specifically, the Aquaculture Management Directorate required science advice defining potential exposure and associated biological effects from sea lice bath treatments in the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick. DFO scientists drafted three scientific working papers and meeting participants conducted impartial and objective scientific review of the papers. These proceedings summarize the discussions at the peer review. The conclusions and specific advice resulting from the meeting are contained in a Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Science Advisory Report 2012/070 (DFO 2012).
