UK - Registration is now open for the Fish Vet Societys annual Spring Conference being held at the Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh airport, on Tuesday 28 & Wednesday 29 March.

The veterinarian in charge of organising this annual event, Matthijs Metselaar, commented: “Our Spring Conference has become a much needed and very welcome opportunity for fish health professionals to come together and review important topics in a convivial and professional atmosphere of knowledge share. One of our key objectives is to encourage the brightest and best veterinarian students to enter our young industry and we are therefore sponsoring ten students to come and present to the Conference.”

He continued: “Not only do we have an impressive range of external presenters lined up, the Society has coordinated this year’s event with the Laboratory Animal Science Association (LASA) and they are holding their Conference the following day in the same venue.”
