About the speaker: Dr Van de Sompel graduated in 1990 as a veterinary surgeon, with honors, from the University of Ghent. As part of a family veterinary practice with her husband that focuses on small (companion) animals, pigeons and other birds, and fish, she is the primary veterinarian who deals with fish patients on a daily basis. Typical cases seen involve ornamental fish, or consulting with sustainable aquaculture farms, including koi, other carp, sturgeons and various aquarium fish, and occasionally turtles.
