Technical Abstract: Aquaculture 2013 The Aquaculture Drug Research and Drug Approval Status special session had 7 presentations with good attendance at each presentation. The session is organized and moderated by Jim Bowker and Dave Straus; this was the 11th year for this session focused on research in aquaculture therapeutants. We plan to continue this next year, so we'll be calling to see about presenters! Copper Sulfate (CuSO4) Saprolegniasis: Two separate Final Study Reports (lab and field) for the effectiveness dose-confirmation study of CuSO4 on fungus of channel catfish eggs have been submitted by the sponsor (Freeport-McMoRan) to the FDA/CVM. We are awaiting the outcome and anticipate providing any information needed by CVM. This should complete all major technical sections except for Environmental Safety under a hatchery scenario. Ichthyophthiriasis: The Environmental Safety technical section for the indication "… to control mortality associated with ichthyophthiriasis on channel catfish cultured in earthen ponds" will be submitted soon. A draft label has been prepared and "all other information" is being compiled. Dave Straus, USDA/ARS, Harry K. Dupree – Stuttgart National Aquaculture Research Center, Stuttgart, AR.
