The ROM's Department of Natural History will once again be offering Fish Identification Workshops in the spring of 2014. Three-day workshops will cover the broad array of families and provide an opportunity to develop specialized knowledge of a group of interest. In addition, we are offering a 2-day workshop on fish species at risk in Ontario and a 3-day workshop focusing on minnows. These workshops are designed primarily for professionals -- technicians, field biologists, and environmental consultants -- but other interested individuals are welcome. More detailed information will be provided once registration is open.
The 2014 workshops will be held again this year at the University of Guelph. In addition to our regular 3-day workshops and the species at risk workshop, we are introducing a new 3-day workshop focusing on Ontario’s minnows. The workshops will be held on the following dates:
Regular Workshop 1: April 15 - 17
Regular Workshop 2: April 22 - 24 (Easter is April 18 - 21)
Minnow Workshop (new): April 28 - 30
Regular Workshop 3: May 5 - 7
Species at Risk Workshop: May 8 - 9
The cost of the regular and minnow workshops are each $580 ($465 for students paying their own way), and the species at risk workshop is $465 ($390 for students paying their own way).
