New guidelines on Management of Mycobacter
ZSL London Aquarium have shared their updated guidelines on management of Mycobacter.
Environmental mycobacter are common in all natural ecosystems and widely present in the aquarium industry. In the past decade a small but steady increase in the number of cases of Mycobacterium infections have occurred, both in fish and in humans.
Aquarists at ZSL London Zoo aquarium have responded by producing guidelines which provide advice on minimising chances of infection as well as steps to take if a possible infection has occurred. They have generously shared these with the BIAZA membership and they can be accessed through the aquarium working group resource page and the animal health and diseases section.
