Aquariums for Zookeepers Workshop

ABWAK 2 day Aquariums for Zookeepers Workshop

Hosted by Sealife London

Monday 5th and Tuesday 6th November 2018


ABWAK bring you a brand new 2 day workshop for zookeepers who are not formal aquarists, but who look after aquariums and wish to improve their knowledge. Mixed species exhibits are becoming increasingly common within the zoo sector and therefore keepers are often looking after taxa and trying to manage systems with little or no experience.  There will be a range of talks, as well as discussions and practical sessions.

  • role of aquariums in zoos
  • basics of water quality management
  • problem solving - common issues in aquatic systems
  • maintenance of life support systems
  • Fish diets and health
