To give participants an understanding and overview of methods and hands-on with modern equipment. The emphasis of the course will be on marine fish, but the techniques can be used for freshwater fish and aquatic invertebrates as well. The course is based on lectures, lab exercises and plenary discussions. The final part of the course constitutes a written project.
During lab exercises participants will measure swimming performance, cost of transport, active as well as resting metabolic rate, and preference temperature in Mahi-mahi and other marine creatures available from the RSMAS lab.
PhD students, Post Docs or junior researchers needing skills to measure aquatic animal respiration, swimming performance or behavior.
