WAVMA - A Global Resource for Aquatic Veterinarians

Welcome Message from 2018 WAVMA President

2018 promises to be a big year for WAVMA and its members. Since our humble  beginnings more than 13 years ago, WAVMA has grown to become the global leader  in aquatic veterinary medicine, with members and linkage to others in more than 74  countries. In 2017, more than 280 individuals became members for the first time –  these are truly impressive statistics and clearly demonstrates the value of membership and WAVMA programs.

What is WAVMA?

WAVMA has been able to organise aquatic veterinary educational programs or streams at the WVA Congress since 2005 and an aquatics stream at the WSAVA Congress since 2015. Through these affiliations, WAVMA has been able to build bridges with numerous veterinary and non-veterinary organisations around the world, including OIE and FAO. Consequently, WAVMA has promoted aquatic veterinary medicine within our profession but also to those outside the profession.
As an organisation with global reach, it is important that we continue to be the conduit of shared knowledge to improve, promote and expand aquatic veterinary medicine. WAVMA is an altruistic organisation prepared to share and build resources for the benefit of the aquatic veterinary community globally.
