AquaChile urges collaboration of all companies

AquaChile sees strong collaboration in health research as the way forward to fighting diseases facing the industry.

“At AquaChile we are convinced that collaborative work is fundamental to face endemic diseases that affect the health of our fish and the sustainability of our industry. In that sense, joining the AUSVET project is a good chance for a partnership that will give us information to face our salmon industry’s common enemies”

AquaChile to come on board!

Today we are so proud to be able to confirm that AquaChile has signed the Research Platform Confidentiality Agreement with Ausvet and are in discussions to finalise their automated data transfers to the Platform.  

The addition of both Marine Harvest and AquaChile to the Research Platform means that the Platform now has about 50% of the industry both in terms of the number of companies, and the percentage of total national production.

Ausvet is delighted with the level of confidence shown in the Research Platform and is working hard to demonstrate its advantages through this year’s risk factor analyses.

Marine Harvest joins the Research Platform!

We are delighted to have secured the participation of Marine Harvest Chile in the Research Platform recently and look forward to being able to include their data in the next two studies into vaccine efficacy and the effect of sea lice burden and treatments on SRS attributed mortalities.

After more than 22 years, Ausvet updates its logo and launches a new website


The familiar blue star has gone.  Our new logo aims to capture the global nature of our work.  It represents the interconnections that drive disease understanding: multifactorial disease causation and multidisciplinary approaches to addressing disease problems.


This new website is designed to enable us to share a bit more of who we are and the work we do. You’ll find information on the newly enlarged team, some of the projects that we’ve been involved in, books and scientific publications, as well as this blog. Here, we will share news, updates and our thoughts on current issues in epidemiology and development.
