MAR 554 - DISEASES OF AQUATIC ORGANISMS
This course is designed to expose students to fundamental and current issues pertaining to
host/pathogen interactions in marine environment. By the end of this course, students
should have a basic understanding of disease processes in aquatic organisms; knowledge of
the tools used for disease diagnosis; and an appreciation of disease management tools
available today. This course will emphasize the role of the environment as an important
player in infectious and non-infectious diseases. The specific subjects that will be covered
are listed on the next page.
There is no applicable textbook (course relatively broad) but reading material will be
posted online (Blackboard), distributed in class, or made available on reserve in the library.
