As director of the Aquatic Animal Health program, I have had to decrease my research activity substantially over the past few years. My personal area of interest is health management of ornamental fish, with my preference being reef fish. With my graduate students, recent work has focused on nutritional management of captive Atlantic surgeonfish. Our newest project involves assessing the effects of water quality, specifically nitrate, on elasmobranch health. I also do limited clinical work with fish and marine mammal species.
