MSD Animal Health Hosts Fish Health Seminar at AquaNor 2013

13 August 2013

NORWAY - MSD Animal Health (known as Merck Animal Health in the USA and Canada) will be participating in this year’s AQUA NOR 2013 in Trondheim, Norway, 13-16 August 2013.

The exhibition draws international participation of key industry and academic leaders to discuss the latest advancements in salmon and cold water aquaculture health management. Expected to be the largest AQUA NOR event ever, attendees can visit the MSD Animal Health booth in Hall D at stand number D-342.

“We are pleased to participate in this year’s AQUA NOR. This is a significant exhibition for our company as the worldwide demand for safe and plentiful fish continues to grow at a significant rate,” explains Johan Kvalheim, recently appointed General Manager, Norway.

“AQUA NOR 2013 gives us the opportunity to share our commitment to the salmon trade and larger aquaculture industry with some of the biggest thought leaders from around the world.”

In addition to an information booth at the conference, the company will host a seminar titled ‘Team Aquatic’ on Wednesday 14 August. During this invite-only seminar, fish health personnel will learn about the latest research in sea lice, pancreas disease and cold water Vibriosis vaccination.

Attendees interested in participating in the seminar should contact their local MSD Animal Health representative to inquire about an invitation.

“Norway contributed more than one million tonnes of salmon to the market in 2012 with that number expected to rise in 2013,” says Kvalheim. “Keeping those fish free of the harmful diseases that can easily infiltrate the farms is important. We are happy to provide important data that will help farmers maintain the health of their stocks.”

Johan Kvalheim, who joined the company in April of this year from The Norwegian Seafood Council, will be available at the company booth throughout the event to discuss the latest trends and research in fish health with attendees.
