Lecture and laboratory course providing an overview of the aquatic environment and the important infectious and noninfectious diseases of fish. Covers important diseases encountered in commercial aquaculture, aquarium systems, and natural waters. The laboratory is designed to provide students with a knowledge base and hands-on diagnostic experience in diseases of fish. Students also maintain and manage aquarium systems during the course to gain an appreciation for the science behind the operation of those systems. The laboratory requires time outside the normal scheduled class sessions (to be scheduled by the students) for management of the aquarium systems. Each student also makes a presentation on a topic in aquatic animal health during the course.
