Fish Health Management Course at NCSU

I just found out about this, http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu:8110/conted/fish/ It is too short notice and too expensive for me now, but I thought others maybe interested in it.

Definately a good course. Thought that it had been defunct for awhile. Glad to see that's not the case Unfortunately I'm in the same boat, not enough notice and funds However the anouncement is worthy of being made a sticky, thanks Steven

i took the fish health managment course a few years back ay UG interesting course.though I have not found alot of pratical use for it.Seem that if the fish has a chance if you give it a good stress free tank to hang in it will pull thru.Takieng scrapings and giving proziquantal baths seem to kill the fish faster than leaving them alone.If you have alot of sick fish and are willing to sacrafice one for diagnotics than it also makes sence

just my 2cents

I skin scrape everything, although I've never had a course in doing so (learned from a mentor.) Before it goes into my tank, it gets scraped. I use it more for prevention than for treatment, but I'm better equipped to diagnose something if I can see it and identify it.

Thanks for the tip. My company ships a lot of fish to schools. We are right in NC. I suggested to my boss that someone in our group go.

I called the Office of Continuing Education today inquiring about this course for next year. They said they will be repeating it again in July from the 20-22, but the website had not yet been updated to take registrations. They also do not have a subscription or anything to be informed when there is an update. You just have to keep checking the website,

I attended two years ago (at NCSU), pretty informative class. At the time, I did not have the clinical knowledge so I found a lot of the information to be either elementaey (basic husbandry) or advanced (pathology, disease descriptions, etc...). The labs were the best part of the experience, definitely made it worth while. I was fortunate to get the graduate student fee, and since I think it would normally cost $500, I just don't know if it would be that worthwhile for the hobbiest.

I would suggest Noga's fish health book, or even the new Lewbart Invert Med. book. This would probably be just as helpful, sans the hands on experience in the lab.

Just my 2 pesos

I attended the course this year - IT WAS EXCELLENT!!

Besides the very informative presentations, the hands on lab time and the observation of surgery on a live koi was beyond what I had expected.

I would highly recommend this course.

Glad to hear it. I was talking to Shane (Lewbart's tech) and he said they were putting a little more emphasis on reef aquariums and coral medicine? Is this true, or is the focus still on fish? I would have snuck into a few of the lectures but was out of town this past week. Glad you had fun...

Take er easy

No fish are still the emphasis - thankfully as I am more interested in fish and fish medicine

Just scrape the fish with a sterile instrument and put it on a slide. Stain with crystal violet or your choice of dye, then counterstain to scope out visible bacteria and/or parasites, if microscope does not have oil immersion. You will be able to narrow it down to parasite or bacteria (gram - or +). From this you can then identify using spread plates if handy. I can give more details on how to create your own.
