More about this event

This Webinar shows published research done on the migration and habitat selection of the marine skin fluke, Neobenedenia sp., on Barramundi (Lates calcarifer). Additionally, this study will also show the associated histopathology of Neobenedenia sp. infection in specific microhabitats selected by the parasite.


Learning Objectives:

1.       Understand the distribution of Neobenedenia on the host.

2.       Observe the implications for such distribution of the parasite on the fish body surface.

3.       Learn new tracking techniques and pathology associated to this marine skin fluke.


About the speaker: Alejandro Trujillo is a current PhD student in James Cook University, he finished his bachelor in science in 2010 in Colombia, and continued to finish his Masters of Philosophy in aquaculture in 2015. His research attempts to understand parasite-host interactions, parasite avoidance mechanisms and host immune responses to infection.
