Benchmark’s Fish Vet Group in Chile recently announced that it will join the list of official fish health laboratories recognized by the country’s National Fisheries and Aquaculture Service (Sernapesca). This means that in addition to performing the usual clinical examinations, the laboratory can now make the appropriate official analysis for specific Sernapesca programs related to major disease challenges in the production of salmonids.
