will also be discussed. Lecture topics
include: basic introduction to fish,
fish biology, and fish physiology;
introduction to fish health management
principles; water quality; pathogens
(parasites, bacteria, viruses, and fungi);
treatments; and biosecurity. Hands-on
wet labs include: water chemistry
testing and analysis, fish anatomy and
