dc.description.abstract A swine disease survey was conducted in the FSM from November, 1995 through March, 1997. The objective of the survey was to document the swine disease status of the FSM for the protection and development of the nation’s swine industry. During the course of the survey, 794 porcine serum samples were collected from within the FSM. Test results indicate that a very narrow spectrum of swine diseases currently exists in the FSM. This finding underscores the need for the FSM to ensure that animal quarantine laws are relevant to the disease status of the country. Current quarantine laws are based on OIE regulations, and are not comprehensive enough to prevent the introduction of new swine diseases.
