First of a two part series, the webinar will take a closer look at a variety of protozoan and metazoan parasites on some of the world’s principal farmed fish, crustacean and mollusc species and make comments on their detection, identification, impacts on their host, and strategies for their management and control. 

The webinar will be presented by Fish Vet Group Senior Scientist (Parasitologist) Dr Andy Shinn.
