What is the EURL for Fish and Crustacean Diseases?

The European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL) for Fish and Crustacean Diseases is funded by the European Commission and is situated within the Unit for Fish and Shellfish Diseases at DTU Aqua – the National Institute of Aquatic Resources at the Technical University of Denmark. The functions and duties are concerned with harmonizing diagnostic procedures for notifiable fish and crustacean diseases in Europe. The research group for Fish and Shellfish Diseases at DTU Aqua has since 1994 been designated as the EU reference laboratory for fish diseases. From July 2018, the functions and duties were expanded to also include crustacean diseases. The functions and duties are described in Council Directive 2006/88/EC. 

A main purpose of the EURL is to ensure the quality of diagnostics of fish and crustacean diseases in Member States and to harmonize the procedures and methodologies applied. The work is mainly concerned with the exotic and non-exotic diseases mentioned in Council Directive 2006/88/EC.

The EURL coordinates those activities of the National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) for Fish and Crustacean Diseases in EU that aim to harmonize diagnostic techniques and disseminate information of mutual interest. Details of our Work Programme is decided at the Annual Workshops of the NRLs for Fish and Crustacean Diseases.
