AVMA Members Participate in Interactive Aquaculture Lab at CVM

FDA Veterinarian Newsletter 2007 Volume XXII, No III

The aquaculture research staff at the Center for Veterinary Medicine’s Office of Research conducted a veterinary interactive lab July 17 for members of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), who were in nearby Washington, DC, attending the association’s annual convention. The lab was held at the CVM’s research facilities in Laurel, MD.
