About this event
In an aquatic habitat fish populations are subjected to a multitude of stressors, including disease. Over the last three decades, bacterial and viral pathogens have decimated fish populations throughout the world. Sometimes this results in large numbers of dead fish in marine and freshwater environments. In some cases high mortality may take a species to the brink of extinction. This presentation gives an overview of conservation medicine as an emerging veterinary discipline with an emphasis on the role played by aquatic veterinarians in rehabilitating wild fish stocks and managing fish health issues.
