PHARMAQ's vaccine ALPHA JECT ® Panga 2 received a marketing authorisation from the Department of Animal Health December 5th 2016.
“The approval of the new vaccine is a great contribution to a more sustainable aquaculture industry in Vietnam. Behind this product are many years of research, development and documentation to ensure that the product provides a significant level of protection as well as being safe for the fish and the environment", says Pham-Cong Thanh, Country Manager PHARMAQ Vietnam.
ALPHA JECT® Panga 2 is an injection vaccine that provides protection against the main diseases in the pangasius farming industry in Vietnam, Edwardsiella ictaluri causing white spot disease and Aeromonas hydrophila causing septicimia and hemorrhage. The diseases occur during the whole production cycle and are associated with high mortalities and great economical losses.
Vaccination is an important step forward in controlling two of the major diseases in farmed pangasius in Vietnam and reduce use of antibiotics. The vaccine is well documented through field trials conducted in close cooperation with our customers over the past years.
"To achieve a more predictable and reliable fish production for pangasius, PHARMAQ aims to continuously support the Vietnamese aquaculture industry towards more advanced fish health solutions in the prevention of diseases. The approval of this vaccine is an important step towards production of safe and healthy seafood in Vietnam” says the President of PHARMAQ Morten Kr. Nordstad.
