This document provides recommendations for surveillance and zoning that will be useful for designing national programmes aimed at reducing the risks of diseases resulting from transfers of live aquatic animals. It contains the collective expert opinion and recommendations made during an expert consultation, jointly organized by FAO, the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), to determine what surveillance options can best support scientifically valid zonation frameworks. These recommendations are aimed at providing scientific advice to countries building national or regional aquatic animal health management infrastructures.
