The Fish Veterinary Society is a forum for Veterinary Surgeons with an interest in fish as well as Fish Health Professionals and veterinary students. It also promotes fish welfare and an increasing stake in the health management of fish whether farmed, in public aquaria or in the ornamental sector including fish kept as pets. Applications for membership are invited from veterinarians, veterinary students and appropriately qualified fish health professionals.


The Society have recently contacted all members with regard to some changes to how the Society operates, meetings etc. If you haven’t received the letter or are interested in membership by all means have a look and contact us. The Society also holds a list of vets who are interested in treating fish.

The most recent FVS Conference took place near Edinburgh on 22nd – 23rd March 2017. The AGM reports are available on the Members’ area of the website. The next Conference will be held 20th-21st March 2018 (click here for the programme)
