Susceptible Species of Aquatic Animals

Reportable and immediately notifiable diseases are of significant importance to aquatic animal health and to the Canadian economy.

The table below provides a summary of the scientific names of the susceptible species and identifies the disease(s) to which they are susceptible.

Susceptibility in aquatic species is determined if the infection can be demonstrated by natural occurrence of the disease in the species, or by experimental exposure of the species to the disease agent through a pathway that mimics a natural route of infection.

If you suspect or detect any of the reportable diseases in the animals that you own or work with, you are required by law to immediately contact the CFIA.

Only laboratories are required to notify the CFIA upon suspicion or detection of immediately notifiable diseases.

Important Note: The Health of Animals Regulations includes the scientific names for aquatic species.

Susceptible species have many common names, but only one common name has been provided in the table to assist in identifying their scientific name.

These names are for aquatic animal health purposes only and do not replace the CFIA Fish List which is used for the labelling of fish imported into Canada or produced by an establishment registered with the CFIA under the Fish Inspection Regulations.
