up-skilling as an aquatic veterinarian as well as exposure to the most recent research and best practice in aquaculture and fisheries in North America. This knowledge and experience gained would be directly reflected back onto projects that Panaquatic participates in as well as our aquaculture clients present and future.
1. Attendance at in the AquaVet program, an intensive 4-week aquatic veterinary medicine course conducted by Cornell University, in Massachusetts, USA
AQUAVET is a demanding intensive 4 week aquatic veterinary medicine course aimed to equip members of the veterinary profession with the skills and knowledge required to work in the aquatic field. The biomedical skills used so successfully by veterinarians to deal with disease and increase productivity in the terrestrial world can be applied to aquaculture too, but this is only possible by fostering knowledge and skills through programs such as AQUAVET. I attended this course in May/June this year to further my own knowledge and skills in aquatic medicine for the benefit of Panaquatic and Australian aquaculture.
