Considering that Ukraine has more than 50,000 reservoirs, and this is a huge potential of fish resources suitable for fish farming, and one of the largest coastal lines of the sea in Europe in the Old World, the question arises, how do we use this natural treasure and what rules need to be introduced and what food safety and risk management standards?

These and other auxiliary solutions in the Biorisk control system were presented in the presentation of Sergey Krivodonov.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM - pest control) is a pest control concept that uses the best available combination of technologies to solve a specific problem with pests. It promotes the methods available to the farmer and allows pest control with the least use of chemicals to produce high yields and maximize profits. Reducing the use of pesticides is an important factor because this control method is often uneconomical and dangerous for humans, animals, plants and food. Moreover, many pesticides kill both pests and their natural enemies at the same time, leaving all living things, open territories, objects, vehicles, etc. open to the undeniable invasion of pests. Economic thresholds are used to help farmers decide when pesticides are economically feasible.
The Center for Pest Control and Pest Management of the NUBiP of Ukraine offers the development of various individual programs (recommendations) with integrated Pest Management (IRM-pest control). On an ongoing basis, conducts training in integrated Pest Management (IPM - pest control), risk analysis and critical control points and the implementation of the “Prerequisite Control Program for Pests, Type, Prevention, Prevention and Control Means” for specialists of state institutions, laboratories , universities and research institutes, private companies and non-governmental organizations involved in agriculture, aquaculture, the fishing industry, amateur and port fishing, food safety food products.
