WAVMA - A Global Resource for Aquatic Veterinarians

Welcome from WAVMA's 2017 President, Dr. Laura Urdes 

Chris Walster - Wavma President

As the 2017 President of WAVMA, it will be my pleasure to take the lead of this outstanding organization, which has so much to offer to its members, as well as to the veterinary communities and societies, worldwide! For its members, WAVMA is continually re-inventing and improving itself this being, in my opinion, the recipe for success for international organizations like WAVMA.

In 2017, WAVMA will carry on fulfilling its Mission and Objectives for the benefit of its members and the society at large. To give an insight into WAVMA's plans for the year 2017, which have taken shape thankful to the hard work of the WAVMA Committees during the year 2016, under Nick Saint-Erne's Presidency, we anticipate to have available to our members:

  • updated Bylaws
  • a refined brochure, available in multiple languagues
  • a revised and improved CertAqV Credentialing Program
  • a WAVMA Conference website
  • a Scientific Conference alongside our Annual General Meeting in Transylvania, Romania

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all our members, their families and their dear ones A Prosperous and Successful 2017 Year!


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.
