About

fishvet_template_about.jpg

The American Association of Fish Veterinarians (AAFV; fishvets.org) is an association of licensed North American veterinarians who practice fish medicine either as…

  • part of their traditional practice;
  • with or alongside their institutional employment;
  • or as their main species group within their "fish practice.”

As with traditional veterinary medicine, fish medicine can be roughly divided into…

  • pet fish (e.g. tropical & pond species like koi),
  • food and bait fish (aquaculture production),
  • lab animal,
  • and natural resource fisheries.

Some of our members practice in all areas while others are more specialized in one or the other.

A central function of this association is to advance the quality and stature of clinical fish veterinary practice.
