SYNDEL Ferndale, Wa — “Our goal with these label extensions is to fill an unmet need by providing government, commercial hatcheries and other fish production facilities with legal options for protecting fish from common health concerns. Freshwater salmonid facilities run the risk of the parasite Gyrodactylus, which causes mortality and reduced growth. The lack of options for treating fungus on fish has historically resulted in aquaculture facilities resorting to using treatments that are less than ideal, and our product provides hatcheries with an approved option for treating fish. Ultimately, our aim is to support hatchery efforts to meet the world’s growing food demand with safe and healthy options. We would also like to thank our Federal partners at UMESC and FDA CVM’s Office of Research for their efforts to generate the supporting data” Syndel CEO Chris McReynolds said.

FDA PRESS RELEASE — “This approval will help provide a critical treatment for improving fish health. The agency also anticipates that resource management agencies will use this approved treatment for aiding in the restoration of certain freshwater fish populations.” The new product indications address disease concerns identified by aquaculture facilities in the US FWS Aquatic Animal Drug Approval Partnership’s Unmet Fish Drug Needs Survey.
