About this webinar: This presentation will give an overview of well-known and emerging tilapia bacterial and viral diseases. As a commercially important food fish, tilapia are the second-most common farmed finfish species, worldwide, belonging to the family Cichlidae.

Learning Objectives – participants will understand:
1. Important common and emerging viral and bacterial diseases in tilapia;
2. How these disease affect tilapia and tilapia production; and,
