Biotope: specialist veterinary consultancy putting welfare first

Biosecurity and Veterinary Health Plans (VHP) are at the core of aquaculture for the future and have been a focus of considerable effort for DEFRA. Developing the VHP which has within it how a site will handle biosecurity is fundamental, Biotope has been at the forefront of this for fish farming and for various exotic species production. We have a unique template based system to take you through developing a meaningful VHP.

We can also work with you to take your static ‘plan’ into the next step of active ‘planning’.

‘Biosecurity is the sum of risk management practices in defence against biological threats.’

‘Veterinary Health Planning aims to reduce disease by preventive management, a positive health approach which reduces the need for use of medicines’
