Counseling of ISO 9001 in Aquarium Plant of Pingtung Agriculture Biotechnology Park (PABP)

Abstract

Ornamental fish industry is a significant exquisite agriculture with international competitiveness; however, the feeding style of aquarium, management of quality control and analysis of output value and profit are still lacking in systematized and standardized management. Therefore, it is crucial to promote ornamental aquarium industry to be commercialized and globalized. ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS) and also essential for every industry. We have conducted “Biologics safety control of ornamental aquarium” to improve the level of quality management. Furthermore, we guide aquarium plants of PABP to combine ISO 9001 toward the system of management. It will promote the ornamental aquarium industry to meet the requirement of international aquarium product quality regulation and achieve advantage on the market. We also guide the ornamental aquarium farms to register their information, which will be beneficial to management and integrated statistics of information as a reference to develop policies in the future.

Vaccination Strategies for preventing and controlling of Foot-and-Mouth Disease

Abstract

The Taiwan, Penghu and Matsu areas of Republic of China (ROC) obtained the recognition of the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) as free zones of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) with vaccination on May 26, 2017. It showed that the vaccination strategy as a control measure of FMD implemented in ROC is effective. According to the schedule of FMD eradication program addressed by the Bureau of Animal and Plant Health Inspection and Quarantine, Council of Agriculture, these FMD free zones will be scheduled to stop vaccinating against FMD virus on July 1, 2018. It is hopeful to gain the recognition of OIE as free zones of FMD without vaccination of Taiwan, Penghu and Matsu areas in the future. However, many Asian countries are FMD epidemic countries. Mainland China is not only the biggest pork production country, but also FMD epidemic country. Furthermore, the international transportation is convenient, as well as the transnational business model of livestocks husbandry has been established. For preventing and controlling of FMD, it is necessary to understand the vaccination strategy to strengthen the biosecurity practices at farm.
