More about this event

This presentation will take a novel approach to discussing common fish diseases. Just as certain species and breeds of animals are predisposed to certain disease conditions, this also holds true for many fish species. Thus, the common diseases of ornamental fish will be discussed by first introducing the fish species. By the end of this presentation, you will learn about the different fish speices and be able to recognise the clinical signs of illness and be able to make the diagnosis for successful treatment.

This webinar is suitable for veterinarians, vet techs/nurses, vet students, research scientists and aquarists/aquarium husbandry staff.
