Course Structure

Historically, Diseases of Warm Water Fish has been taught as a two-week intensive summer short course. In 2014 we changed the formatting and the didactic part of the program is now taught exclusively on-line. It is taught as a “Summer C” class and will be in progress May 11- August 7, 2015. Course materials will include recorded lectures, supplemental reading, homework and group assignments, as well as quizzes and a comprehensive final exam. Interactive discussion sessions will be held every two weeks, and will be recorded for students who are unable to attend the live sessions. There are two required textbooks for the class, Fish Diseases: Diagnosis and Treatment, Second Edition by Dr. Ed Noga (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010, 519 pp) and Fundamentals of Ornamental Fish Health edited by Dr. Helen Roberts (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010, 229 pp).

 For 2015, we have added a new class, a one-week laboratory course which will be taught at the University of Florida Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory, located in Ruskin Florida. The lab course will be a five-day: Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm. Laboratory exercises will include water quality analysis, necropsy techniques, parasite identification, an introduction to microbiological techniques and development of problem solving/ case management skills. There will also be field trips to local fish farms and the Florida Aquarium. Registration is limited to 20 students and Diseases of Warm Water Fish online students. On rare occasions, permission of instructor may allow participation by qualified professionals if space is available. Diseases of Warm Water Fish online students will have priority registration status.
