You will only need internet access and either an audio headset or a telephone.

Course Description

Aquaculture is one of the world’s fastest developing food production sectors. Additionally, several species of fish have gained tremendous popularity worldwide as pets and hold significant emotional and economic value to their owners, increasing the demand for thorough diagnostics for certain conditions.

During this lecture, lethal and non-lethal diagnostic methods in fish will be discussed as well as history collection, onsite versus clinic visits, sedation/anesthesia, euthanasia, physical examination, sample collection, necropsy, sample submission, and some common diseases and treatments in fish medicine.

Seminar participants will receive 1.5 units of CE credit.
