Courses Taught

  • Fish Physiology The course will study the different systems of the fish and how they interact such as digestive, locomotion, sensory, etc. (Pat Mazik 2016)
  • Advanced Ichthyology (Stuart Welsh 2016)
  • Advanced Ichthyology (Stuart Welsh 2015)
  • Wildlife and Fisheries Graduate Seminar (Petra Wood 2015)
  • Aquatic Toxicology This course will have an emphasis on the types of toxicity testing, the environmental fate of chemicals and the types of assessment needed. This class will emphasize fish toxicity. Students will learn about different types of toxicity testing including acute, early life stage, chronic, freshwater, and seawater. The environmental fate of contaminants involving transport and transformation processes, bioaccumulation, bioavailability, biochemical mechanism, fate modeling will also be discussed. Functional endpoints of ecosystem effects, federal regulation and ecological risk assessments as they relate to toxicological assessments are also emphasized. (Pat Mazik 2014)
  • Advanced Ichthyology (Stuart Welsh 2014)
  • Wildlife and Fisheries Graduate Seminar (Petra Wood 2014)
  • Fish Physiology Course covers the physiological systems of fish (ie nervous, reproductive, endocrine systems) (Pat Mazik 2013)
