Biosafety restrictions: 
Pathogens of fish, molluscs and crustacea are not covered by the Specified Animals Pathogens Order (SAPO) or UK Health and Safety executive (HSE) Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens. There are no known zoonotic viral pathogens of the aforementioned aquatic animals. However potential release of a WOAH or EU listed pathogen into the environment would be serious, potentially affecting wild and farmed animals and disease-free status for certain diseases. Work with these viruses must be undertaken in a BSL 2 compliant facility at the minimum, with appropriate inactivation and disposal for all waste streams including from laboratory and aquaria based experimental facilities.
