Importer Guidance for Aquatic Animal Health Import Quarantine Unit
Appendix E: Susceptible Species

The CFIA Susceptible Species of Aquatic Animals table provides a list of the scientific names of 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.

It is required to immediately contact the CFIA if reportable diseases are detected or suspected in the aquatic animals of the quarantine unit.
