A five-day course on the key principles of fish health management for aquaculture (hatcheries and net pen) and aquarium fishes. The theoretical components of this course emphasize recognition of what is ‘non-normal’ in fish husbandry settings. The interactive lectures focus on recognition of types of diseases: (e.g., environmental, pathogenic, parasitic or genetic) combined with prevention and mitigation techniques. Additional topics include proper techniques for sampling fish (with a practical fish dissection component) and biosecurity techniques. Additional practical components include creation of several SOPs (standard operating procedures) for recording fish health events, biosecurity monitoring and fish necropsy assessment.
