By using biosecurity principles in aquaculture operations, the risk of AIS introduction and the spread to new locations will be greatly minimized. One approach to this problem is to apply the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) concept similar to that used by the seafood industry to minimize seafood consumption health risks. The advantages of this system are that it can effectively deal with diverse practices and operations, it has proven to be a good partnership between industry and government regulators, and it is effective when properly applied.
