We host a seminar series that consists of lectures by experts on a variety of aquatic animal topics. Several seminars are scheduled each academic semester and can be attended both in-person at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine and remotely through Zoom.
Our program offers courses on aquatic animal health and conservation topics that you can take from anywhere in the world. Get started today by visiting our Distance Learning webpage to find out more if this opportunity is right for you!
Our program has created fun learning videos all about aquatic animals topics to keep your kids/students engaged at home. Optional learning questions accompany these videos. Come and enjoy learning with the Aquatic Animal Health Program!
Diagnostics are a crucial part of the animal health puzzle. While some domestic animal diagnostics can be applied to aquatic animals, others require modification and creativity. Our program provides resources that are specifically suited for these aquatic species.
Our research interests include animal and ecosystem health, conservation, and beyond. We have faculty and graduate students studying a range of aquatic species and habitats in an effort to contribute to new scientific data regarding aquatic animals and habitats.
We offer a range of educational opportunities for veterinary students, post-DVM specialty programs, undergraduate and graduate students, and even primary education students.
Our program is part of a collaboration with the Southeast Stranding Network. Our team assists with response to sick, injured, or deceased marine mammals and sea turtles. Additionally, these efforts contribute to population and health data of these species in this expansive geographical range.
