International Workshop on Applied Aspects of Marine Parasitology

Location: Horta (Azores, Portugal)
Event Type: Workshop
Event Date: 2006-05-21    
End Date: 2006-05-24

Event Description:
An International Workshop on Applied Aspects of Marine Parasitology will be held in Horta (Azores, Portugal) between 21-24 of May, 2006. This workshop is organized by the IMAR – Centre of the IMAR of the University of the Azores, the Department of Oceanography and Fisheries (DOP), the Sea Sciences Center of the Algarve (CCMAR) and the Sea and Environment Sciences Faculty of the University of the Algarve.
The international workshop on “Applied Aspects of Marine Parasitology”, with an emphasis on parasites as biological tags, is an initiative designed as part of the activities of CCMAR and IMAR/DOP sponsored by different institutions. The aim of this initiative is to promote the capability of students, scientists and technicians to apply different methodologies in population dynamic studies that are currently being developed and to improve the general knowledge about the parasites occurring in the region.
The study of marine parasites has become very important, more holistic and more international in recent years; therefore this is a good opportunity to exchange information between colleagues and to promote interdisciplinarity in Marine Parasitology.
The importance of this workshop is enhanced by our intention to perform a preliminary parasitological survey of the most commercially important species that are captured around the Azores, about which little is known.
The workshop will focus on laboratory exercises as well as lectures to cover essential methods, practical tips and different sampling approaches for studying marine parasites under a different perspective.
