WAVMA has been able to organise aquatic veterinary educational programs or streams at the WVA Congress since 2005 and, from this year, an aquatics stream at the WSAVA Congress for the first time ever. 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
