Important Notes:

  • Korea has aquatic animal health requirements for imports of certain live aquatic animals and fish and seafood products.
  • Korea has delayed implementation of its new aquatic animal health requirements for imports of live wild finfish and wild crustaceans and wild chilled/frozen shrimp intended for human consumption until April 1, 2018. Consignments of live wild finfish and wild crustaceans and wild chilled/frozen shrimp intended for human consumption shipped to arrive in Korea prior to that date do not need to be accompanied by an aquatic animal health and sanitary certificate or any other certificate. An aquatic animal health and sanitary certificate is still required for exports of live cultured finfish (AQAH-1088) and cultured crustaceans (AQAH-1089) intended for human consumption to Korea. It remains the responsibility of the exporter to verify prior to exporting any consignment to ensure they meet all the requirements of the importing country.
  • There may be existing certificates or additional information from the Fish and Seafood program. However, for the specific commodity above, an aquatic animal health certificate is required.
  • To request an export certificate outlined above or if you require any other information on aquatic animal health export certification, please contact your CFIA Area Office.
