15th Fish Immunology/Vaccination Workshop, 21-25 April 2014

15th Fish Immunology/Vaccination Workshop, 21-25 April 2014 | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The Wageningen fish immunology / vaccination workshops have been organised annually since 1998. Typically, the workshops are characterised by one-hour presentations given by experienced lecturers, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. This year’s (2014) subject is FISH IMMUNOLOGY/VACCINATION with extra attention being paid to the latest advances in fish immunology with emphasis on vaccination. The 2014 workshop includes two afternoons with a choice between hands-on practicals or updates on recent molecular advances in microarray analysis and gene synteny. Further, participants will be asked to send an abstract of their research and present a poster with the best one awarded the poster prize (further information will be provided upon registration). The official workshop language is English.

The objective of the present workshop is to provide participants with advanced knowledge, both theoretical and practical, on the immune system of fish. During the workshop we will discuss the latest insights in the evolution of the immune system but also related issues such as (experimental) animal welfare. The level of the workshop is targeting academic and company researchers as well as management staff in the aquaculture industry. In particular, we more than welcome PhD students, who have a reduced registration fee.

John Bostock's insight:

This looks a very useful short course - especially for PhD students involved in fish immunology

AQUAEXCEL PROJECT: Short Training Courses

AQUAEXCEL PROJECT: Short Training Courses | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

AQUAEXCEL organises 4 new pioneering technical Training Courses that focus on different aspects of aquaculture experimentation. These Training Courses are the only ones of their kind, putting emerging aquaculture infrastructure centres of excellence at the forefront.

 

This is a unique chance for researchers and technicians in this field as course attendance is free, thanks to EC FP7 funding. Participants are expected to pay their own travel, subsistence and accommodation.


Remaining courses are:


Course 2: Contribution of Genomic Approaches to the Development of Sustainable Aquaculture for Temperate and Mediterranean Fish


Course 3: The Application of Chromosome Set Manipulations and the Importance of Gamete Collection and Management in Aquaculture


Course 4: Efficient Utilisation of New Monitoring and Control Systems in Fish Experiments.

John Bostock's insight:

These are high quality one-off specialist courses that will be particularly interesting to early career aquaculture researchers

Short Course: Systemic Pathology of Fish

Short Course: Systemic Pathology of Fish | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

"The course revolves around diagnostic pathology of fish diseases including those found in farmed, wild and aquarium species in both freshwater and the marine environment. It will approach interpretation of histopathological lesions from a systemic perspective, and will assume a good working knowledge of pathological processes and appropriate terminology in vertebrates in general. Typical and common diseases will be shown as well as emerging ones in a wide variety of environments. The course will comprise a series of lectures with an afternoon of slide interpretation. Participants are encouraged to bring with them interesting case material (H&E slides only please) for group review and  discussions. The course instructor will be Professor Hugh W. Ferguson, currently professor of Pathology, School of Veterinary Medicine, St George's University, Grenada, W. Indies, and Professor Emeritus, University of Stirling, Scotland. Professor Ferguson is an American Board Certified veterinary pathologist, and he brings 40 years of experience as a diagnostic pathologist to his subject. He is author and editor of the standard book "Systemic Pathologist of Fish: a Text and Atlas of Normal Tissues in Teleosts and their Responses in Disease." This text will be made available to course participants at a discount over the normal price (not included in the registration price)"

Standard Digital News - Kenya : Karatina University College to start fish farming courses next year

Standard Digital News - Kenya : Karatina University College to start fish farming courses next year | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
A university plans to launch a fisheries curriculum to boost fish farming in Central Kenya.

 

The Karatina University College in Nyeri will admit the first batch of students in January next year for degree, diploma and certificate courses that will dwell on the practical, technological and market issues of commercial fish farming.

Plans for the curriculum emerged during a forum convened by the university, which brought together fishing industry stakeholders.

 

 Speaking at the forum, the Karatina University Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Academics, Prof Peninah Aloo, noted that Nyeri’s potential in fish farming was under-exploited. “The Nyeri environs have such good ecological conditions for fish breeding, and the current level of production of fish is far below the ideal potential of this region,” said Prof Oloo. She said that to achieve the dream of sustainable food productivity, all stakeholders had to invest in realistic training objectives and the forthcoming curriculum was part of the strategy.
