Module 1: Specialised Case Study Discussions on How to Manage a Health Issue on a Sea Bass / Sea Bream Farm

Three short sessions (90 minutes) have been designed for seabass and seabream health and welfare experts. In these sessions the experts attending have been provided with a mock case based on real situations in sea bream and sea bass health and disease management designed by the organising team. The mock cases are sent to the selected attendees two days in advance and they are requested to send in advance and present in the session their own proposed recommendations or proposed solutions for each case. During the 90 minutes sessions all proposals are shared and discussed.

Reports on the sessions held will be available soon.

Module 2: Practical Short Training Courses on Diagnostics of Sea Bass and Sea Bream Diseases

This module is divided into three short training courses that are being held online. The courses focus on different aspects of diagnostics in sea bass and sea bream diseases and health management such as basic diagnostic methodologies and protocols, specific parasitological diagnostic and specific diagnostic methodologies, and protocols in microbiology. Advances, methods, and standards derived from the different PerformFISH activities are also being presented in these sessions.

All applicable international, national and/or institutional guidelines for the care and use of animals were followed and the procedures here performed were in accordance with the ethical standards of the institution (D.
