Description

This presentation will provide an overview of the elasmobranchs (sharks, skates & rays) which are cartilagenous fish commonly kept in public aquariums. Elasmobranchs are different from teleosts or bony fish, and often require attention by an aquatic veterinarian. This presentation will cover unique anatomy and physiology of elasmobranchs, some research addressing artificial reproduction, and will discuss some common problems seen in captive elasmobranchs and wild shark rescues.

Objectives

Participants will understand:
1. elasmobranch anatomy and how it differs from teleosts;
2. elasmobranch physiology and reproduction; and,
3. some shark medical issues and treatments.
