The National Animal Health Monitoring System (NAHMS), a nonregulatory unit of USDA–APHIS–VS, is developing its Aquaculture 2020 study. This study is expected to include production of fish, crustaceans, and mollusks for various end uses.

NAHMS strives to collect information that will be most beneficial to the stakeholders. Your input is essential if we are to identify key health issues and fill information gaps facing the U.S. aquaculture industry sectors.

Please complete a brief survey on line in SurveyMonkey to:

– tell us what you consider to be the most important health issues facing the aquaculture industry.

– help identify the critical information needs regarding health-management practices used in the U.S. aquaculture industry sectors.

– share your opinion on how we can encourage aquaculture producers to participate in the Aquaculture 2020 study.

NAHMS will use results from the needs assessment survey to develop the information objectives that will shape the actual NAHMS study.

The survey will be available from March 22 through April 30, 2017.
