Fish Health Management Flyer

This two-day workshop includes lectures and hands-on wet labs in basic fish health management.  A primary goal of the workshop will be to review important principles needed to keep fish healthy and appropriate responses to a disease outbreak, though many specific diseases and treatments will also be discussed.  Lecture topics include:  basic introduction to fish, fish biology, and fish physiology; introduction to fish health management principles; water quality; pathogens (parasites, bacteria, viruses, and fungi); treatments; and biosecurity.  Hands-on wet labs include:  water chemistry testing and analysis, fish anatomy and necropsy, and how to check for fish parasites. The workshop will focus on freshwater aquaculture production systems and fish; however, important marine diseases and treatments will also be discussed.


Cost is $100 per person.  Space is extremely limited, and the workshop typically extremely quickly.  Registration is required by November 29th.
