Ever wondered where and how certain fish flukes attach to hosts, and hide out? Why is it that sometimes we may miss a diagnosis, or that treatments sometimes don’t work as well as it should?
Mr Alejandro Trujillo is a current PhD student in James Cook University, and his research attempts to understand parasite-host interactions, parasite avoidance mechanisms, and host immune responses to infection.
This Webinar presents 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 – participants will understand:
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.
