The American Fisheries Society - Fish Culture Section's Working Group on Aquaculture Drugs, Chemicals, and Biologics (WGADCB) has published a Guide to Using Drugs, Biologics and Other Chemicals in Aquaculture. WGADCB have also developed a Treatment Calculator to assist in the dosage calculations of certain products.
The Guide is provided as an Adobe PDF file and the Treatment Calculator is offered as a Microsoft Excel 2007 file. Your computer must have installed either Microsoft Excel or any other program that will read and execute calculations of an Excel file.

*While the calculator has been checked for accuracy and can be a useful tool to aid in calculating treatment dosages, the end user is responsible for correctly applying any regulated compound in aquaculture
