Surveillance programmes

The official surveillance programmes for diseases in aquatic and terrestrial animals in Norway are run by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and are planned and coordinated by the Norwegian Veterinary Institute as part of the legislation for terrestrial and aquatic animal health and food in Norway regulated under the Norwegian Food Law.

The Norwegian Veterinary Institute receives samples from diseased animals (including fish) and in relation to feed and food safety issues. Such samples are part of the passive surveillance in Norway, and through these samples, new or emerging diseases can be discovered.

In addition, there is active surveillance through specific surveillance programmes based on planned sampling and investigation by sensitive methods.

The majority of the Annual Reports are in English, the individual reports are part of the report series:"Surveillance programmes for terrestrial and aquatic animals in Norway".
