ParaFishControl, in collaboration with TechFish and DAFINET, are organising the training course Control of Parasitic Diseases in Aquacultured Fish – Innate and Acquired Resistance. This event will be held in the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) on the 30th of April 2019.
The course will include lectures, demonstrations and discussions by experts within specific disciplines related to fish pathology, immunology, disease control and genetics. The course will focus on the following topics: description of diseases in selected fish production systems, application of genomic tools, sustainable control methods, vaccination, as well as selective breeding as a way to improve health and reduce use of drugs and chemotherapeutants.
The participants are also invited to submit their abstracts in related topics for a 10-minutes presentation during the event. The deadline for abstract submission is the 5th of April 2019. More information on how to submit an abstract can be downloaded here.
The registration to the training course and the attendance to the social dinner is free of charge, but participants are expected to pay for their own travel, subsistence and accommodation.
