Conferences


The Aquarium Vet is now regularly holding E-conferences and E-workshops. Whether you are a public aquarium or zoo aquarist, fish breeder, importer or exporter, wholesaler or retailer, or serious fish hobbyist, you will learn and enjoy from these presentations.

The Aquarium Vet in conjunction with Dr. Tim Miller-Morgan, lead for the Oregon Sea Grant-Aquatic Animal Health Program, is very proud to announce the second E-Aquarium Conference.

The E-Aquarium Conference 2021 will be held online over 4 days (the week commencing October 25th) with 4 hours of live content per day. The conference will be a collection of talks given by experts in their field, with interactive Q & A sessions where you can ask questions of our presenters.

Whether you are a fish breeder, importer or exporter, wholesaler or retailer, public aquarium aquarist, fish hobbyist or someone who just enjoys having fish at home, this is THE conference for you. This conference covers topics relevant for first time fish owners through to the dedicated enthusiast with years of practical experience.
