Due to a lack of interest in some topics in the original workshop, we have revised the workshop schedule.
The Canadian Association of Zoos and Aquariums Nutrition Advisory and Research Group (CAZA-NARG) invites you to attend the 2010 Aquatic Zoo Animal Nutrition Workshop at the Biodôme de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada Thursday November 18 and Friday November 19, 2010.
Day 1 (November 18): Aquatic Birds
Day 2 (November 19): Aquatic Mammals
This workshop is designed for professionals of zoological institutions with responsibilities for any aspect of dietary provision in an aquatic or semi-aquatic environment. The workshop materials will assist you in remaining up-to-date with research in aquatic animal nutrition and with recommended “best practices” relative to diet formulation, husbandry, pathology and, physiology.
Registration can include both or only one workshop date. We offer a reduced rate for students. Please contact Deb McWilliams for a registration form.
