Upcoming Training Courses

Coming soon!

As part of its capacity building activity, PerformFISH is preparing a series of training courses in the field of fish health and welfare, that will be held on-line between March and June 2021. The courses will be based on multidisciplinary integrated diagnostic approach and effective management of preventive, therapeutic and welfare measures focusing on the findings of the PerformFISH project. The courses will be divided into two different type of activities:

  1. Practical Short Training Courses on Different Aspects of Diagnostics: These short, online courses will 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 will also be presented in these sessions. Three independent sessions on different topics will be scheduled. These courses are designed for farm technicians, vets, research fellows and master and PhD students willing to learn more on new diagnostic tools for seabream and seabass.
  2. Discussion on how to manage a health issue on-farm: These sessions are short sessions (90 minutes) scheduled in the afternoon-evening. They focus on mock cases based on real situations in sea bream and sea bass health and disease management designed by the organising team. Session participants will be invited to send in advance and present in the session their own proposed recommendations or proposed solutions for each case. All proposals will be shared and discussed. Three sessions with different cases will be scheduled. These sessions are designed for experienced professionals who want to learn more about how to manage diseases on-farm.
