The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies’ Fish and Wildlife Health Committee voted unanimously to adopt the “AFWA Best Management Practices for Prevention, Surveillance, and Management of Chronic Wasting Disease” at our meeting last week in Tampa, Florida.  In addition, the AFWA Directors passed a formal resolution in support of these Best Management Practices.  Copies of the BMPs, the supporting Technical Review document, and the resolution are now available on the AFWA website at: https://www.fishwildlife.org/application/files/5215/3729/1805/AFWA_CWD_BMPS_12_September_2018_FINAL.pdf.”
