Research Involving Wild Fish and Amphibians

Wednesday, March 21
1:45 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: Madison

Research activities with wild fish or amphibians can be messy, as it often involves an unpredictable number of species and that vary with climate, time of year, and population dynamics. Species used for research may also serve as human or animal food either through commercial harvest or private take. What are the issues IACUCs should consider when reviewing these protocols? During this session, speakers and attendees will:
