Merck Animal Health helps aquaculture producers and conservationists cultivate and maintain healthy and sustainable aquatic ecosystems. Our industry leading biopharmaceutical and technology solutions monitor for insight, optimize with precision, and benchmark for performance.

Boise, Idaho is home to our North America Aquaculture Team, but Merck Animal Health supports aquaculture welfare globally with biopharma brands – like AQUAFLOR®, SLICE®, AQUI-S®, and AQUAVAC® – as well as technology solutions including individual identification from Biomark®, DNA TraceBack® traceability, Vaki® fish handling equipment, Falcon® sea lice detection, and the newest release in aquatic gas optimization, Hyper InfusiO2nTM.
