Description: Ever wonder what happens to all those tissue samples that get shipped to Eagle Fish Health labs for processing? Welcome to this year’s hands-on Aquaculture Committee Continuing Education Workshop at the Eagle Fish Health lab and find out. IDFG Fish Pathologists will be leading class necropsies and dissections and preparing samples to take into the lab where IDFG microbiologists will demonstrate various tests and procedures involved in detecting fish pathogens. If time allows, we will discuss new updates to VFD treatments and tour the new wildlife health lab. Space is limited for this all-day workshop and we will only be able to offer this opportunity to 20 students, so sign up ASAP. Lunch is provided. Transportation to and from the lab is not provided (carpooling options will be available). Workshop location is 1800 Trout Road, Eagle, ID.
