We All Scream for T-shirts!
We have been asked many times to print t-shirts using the Art of Science images! This year, contest finalists will be featured on LinkedIn for a popular vote to choose images for a fund-raising t-shirt.

Ten-Year Anniversary of the Zebrafish Husbandry Workshop at Aquaculture America

2014 marked the official ten-year anniversary of the Zebrafish Husbandry Workshop sponsored by Aquaneering at the World Aquaculture Society Aquaculture America meeting in Seattle, Washington. Although several more informal get-togethers took place in prior years, the first “official” workshop took place in New Orleans on January 18th, 2005 and featured four hours of talks and five speakers (including Brendan Delbos, now Aquaneering’s Eastern Region Sales and Technical rep!). This year, the session covered over thirteen hours and featured 23 speakers. The attendance consistently topped 85 each day, a workshop record.
There were a number of “firsts” this year:

  • A tour of a local zebrafish facility, Seattle Children’s Hospital, was offered on the end of the first day. Feedback from participants was very positive as it gave them the chance to exchange ideas and compare notes in an actual lab setting.
  • CEUs (Continuing Education Unit) were offered for workshop attendance.
  • The Zebrafish Husbandry Association (ZHA) initiated an annual “Stewardship” award for individuals contributing to the husbandry community. Mark Francis, the president of Aquaneering, was the first recipient for founding and continuing to sponsor the workshop.

We eagerly look forward to the 11th annual workshop on February 19 - 22, 2015 in New Orleans!
