2006 Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology

Aquatic Animal Health and Disease

June 5 to August 4, 2006

The objective of the 2006 Pauley Summer Program was to impart an understanding of the pathological processes and health management techniques relating to the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of important aquatic animal diseases and to provide an important research opportunity to participants. Ornamental and food species of finfish, oysters, and shrimp were emphasized, as well as species found locally in Hawai‘i. Nationally and internationally recognized individuals presented topics relating to aquatic animal health and disease diagnostics.

In weeks 1-5, the invited faculty presented lectures and laboratories and the remaining weeks focused on individual student projects. Students were required to present a research presentation at the end of the session. Following the workshop, students returned to their home institution and completed a research paper. The papers were compiled into a formal report.
