Wild boar are an epidemiological reservoir of African swine fever virus because they can contract, carry and spread the disease. This technical document contains a compendium of essential information about wild boar hunting management, wild boar carcass disposal and other biosecurity measures.

This is the official publication, in the series of FAO Animal Production and Health Manuals, of the former Handbook on African Swine Fever in wild boar and biosecurity during hunting. This publication was proposed by the European Commission as a follow-up to the recommendations of the Standing Group of Experts on African swine fever for Europe under the umbrella of the GF‑TADs for Europe.
