||Risk Analysis for Movements of Live Aquatic Animals
||Risk analysis is complex subject that is best learned by actual experience.
This manual was created to assist national competent authorities and
others involved in the assessment and management of risks associated
with the international or domestic moment of live aquatic animals in training
professional staff and raising awareness and understanding among other
stakeholders of the principles and methodology of risk analysis. Using the
training course manual and the recommended supplementary materials,
responsible managers will be able to train staff in the planning and supervision
of risk analyses. The training course will also assist specialists in the
fields of disease, genetics or ecology of aquatic animals to successfully
conduct risk analyses in a manner that incorporates best scientific knowledge,
is transparent and includes adequate stakeholder consultation.
Using a structured step-wise process, the training course guides trainees
through the risk analysis process as applied in the analysis of ecological,
genetic and pathogen risks. Through the use of case studies and group
exercises tailored to local situations, the course provides an in-depth look at
risk analysis as currently applied for evaluation of risks due to pathogens
(import risk analysis), taking trainees from the initial process of establishing
a commodity description and scoping a risk analysis through to conducting
the four risk analysis components of hazard identification, risk assessment,
risk management and risk communication.
