Aeromonas salmonicida Bacterin

For Veterinary Use Only

This bacterin contains formalin inactivated cultures of Aeromonas salmonicida.

USE: For the vaccination of healthy salmonids as an aid in the prevention of furunculosis caused by Aeromonas salmonicida.

VACCINATION PROGRAM: This bacterin has been shown to be safe and effective when administered by immersion to healthy salmonids 2 g or larger. Vaccination should precede exposure of vaccinates to the disease agent by 400 degree-days (number of holding days multiplied by the mean water temperature [°C] during the period).

Dosage and Administration

Each litre of bacterin is sufficient to vaccinate 100 kg of fish. To use, add 1 litre of bacterin to 9 litres of clean hatchery water to make a 10 litre vaccine bath. Aerate the bath. Net, drain and immerse 5 kg batches of fish (≥ 2 g in size) in the bath for 60 seconds. The bath may be reused up to 20 times before discarding. Withhold food from fish 24 hours prior to vaccination.
