Description

This 2-hour lecture on the pathology of the diseases of fish covers the most common diseases of both free-living and laboratory fish as well as examining anatomical and physiological adaptations which predispose them to the development of these diseases.

Objectives

Demonstration of gross morbid anatomy and the pathogenesis of a wide range of disease in fresh- and salt-water species.
By the end of this lecture, the viewer will gain an increased understanding of the gross lesions, as well as the presenting clinical signs, pathogenetic mechanisms and pathophysiology, as well as the appropriate differential diagnosis for a wide range of diseases affecting fish.

Dr. Jeff Wolf is an expert in the area of fish pathology and toxicopathology. Following ten years of clinical veterinary practice, Dr. Wolf received his anatomic pathology training during residencies at the University of Florida and at Virginia Tech. During his tenure at Virginia Tech he was the lead diagnostician at the Aquatic Medicine Laboratory of the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, and his main research activities at VMRCVM involved investigations into the pathogenesis of mycobacteriosis in striped bass.

For the last five years, Dr. Wolf has taught the anatomy, physiology, and pathology sections of the Foundation’s annual Pathology of Laboratory Animals course, as well as lectured at the ACVP/DTF Diagnostic Pathology workshop on diseases of fish. Since 2002, Dr. Wolf has served on the faculty of Aquavet® II Comparative Pathology of Aquatic Animals, a course that is co-sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University, in which he teaches a two-day seminar on the “Toxicologic Pathology of Fishes.”

Dr. Wolf is the curator for the “Registry of Tumors in Lower Animals”, an archival tissue and data collection that is housed at EPL. Dr. Wolf is a Co-Editor of the Journal of Aquatic Animal Health and has been an Associate Editor and editorial board member for Toxicologic Pathology. He has authored or co-authored numerous articles that have appeared in peer-reviewed journals, including diagnostic guidelines for non-neoplastic liver disease in fish, proliferative thyroid lesions in fish, proliferative hepatic lesions in bullhead catfish, thyroid alterations in Xenopus laevis, and endocrine disruption effects in Japanese quail. He also has written or contributed to book chapters that concern the toxicologic pathology of alternative animal models..
