Description

In an aquatic habitat fish populations are subjected to a multitude of stressors, including disease. Over the last three decades, bacterial and viral pathogens have decimated fish populations throughout the world. Sometimes this results in large numbers of dead fish in marine and freshwater environments. In some cases high mortality may take a species to the brink of extinction. This presentation gives an overview of conservation medicine as an emerging veterinary discipline with an emphasis on the role played by aquatic veterinarians in rehabilitating wild fish stocks and managing fish health issues.

Objectives

Participants will understand:
1. the discipline of Conservation Medicine.
2. the role played by pathogens in causing serious fish kills.
3. the role played by aquatic veterinarians in saving fish species from extinction.

Professor Faisal started his aquatic veterinary professional career in 1977, when his doctoral thesis at the Veterinary School of the University of Munich, Germany, focused on the Spring Viremia of Carp Virus. Since then he practiced aquatic veterinary medicine in academia where he combined field observation, clinical examination, and laboratory studies harmoniously. His clinical experience included teleosts, molluscs, and amphipods. His research focused on understanding the host-pathogen interactions. Currently he directs the Aquatic Animal Medicine Program at Medicine, Michigan State University and oversees fish health issues for Michigan, including fishery rehabilitation programs.
