Results of DFO fish health audits of British Columbian marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility This report provides summary fish health data collected by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) from randomly selected licensed marine facilities culturing salmon in British Columbia (BC). Results of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) screening are provided, as well as a list of the bacterial pathogens isolated by culture, and whether a pathogen or disease has been confirmed by histopathology (microscopic examination). DFO veterinarians provide a farm-level diagnosis and identify any conditions of note based on these laboratory findings and any other information collected during the fish health audit or reported by companies as a condition of licence. Site-specific data were published on an annual basis from 2011 to 2016. From 2017 onwards, site-specific data are published by audit on a quarterly basis. The terminology used in the report’s column headings can be found in the terminology file below. DFO Science is engaged in numerous active research projects examining issues such as fish diseases, wild-cultured species interactions and habitat impacts related to aquaculture. Information on some of these projects, as well as on aquaculture research occurring in other regions, is available on our [website](http://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/aquaculture/science-eng.html"website"). 2018-03-09 2018-10-06 Fisheries and Oceans Canada webmasterpacrhq@dfo-mpo.gc.ca Nature and EnvironmentFisheries and Oceans CanadaPacific regionAquaculturefish farmingsalmon farmingfish health monitoringfish health auditBritish ColumbiaBC Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2011-2016CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2011-2016-rpt-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-eng.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2011-2016CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2011-2016-rpt-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-fra.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2011-2016CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2011-2016-def-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-eng.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2011-2016CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2011-2016-def-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-fra.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2017CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2017-rpt-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-fra.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2017CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2017-rpt-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-eng.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2017CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2017-def-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-fra.csv Results of DFO fish health audits of BC marine finfish aquaculture sites, by facility 2017CSV https://www.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/od-ds/aquaculture/health-audit-fac-verif-sante-inst-2017-def-pac-dfo-mpo-aquaculture-eng.csv
