There are a variety of events pertaining to aquatic animal health education. Some are open to the public as part of our extension mission to educate students in K-12 public schools and professionals working in the field (aquaculture, aquarists, etc), while others are focused on graduate or veterinary student education.
If you’d like to have your event added to our website, please contact our Program Assistant, Amanda Sheehy.
Seminars include topics on biology, conservation, training, and medicine. Presentations are given by professionals in the field with diverse backgrounds and research interests. Some presentations are recoded and can be viewed on your own time.
Our program is heavily involved in educational outreach opportunities around Gainesville, Florida and surrounding areas. We participate in festivals, school classrooms and events, camps, open houses, and so much more! If you are interested in our program participating at your event, check out our outreach page for more information.
Conferences are a great way to learn about current research and projects going on in the field. They allow for many networking and professional development opportunities. Our program hosts an annual Manatee Research Symposium. However, other conferences around the globe are posted on this page for your reference.
