Mohammed, Haitham Assistant Professor


Fish diseases represent one of the most challenging areas facing today's aquaculture industry. My research to date reflects my interest in using basic science in the area of aquatic animal health to provide new applied solutions and practical management actions to control fish disease. My goal is to address the evolving fish disease and diagnostic issues facing aquaculture producers and to promote sustainable aquaculture practices. Focal areas of activity include raising awareness regarding biosecurity in aquaculture, increasing capacity for disease surveillance and monitoring, and promoting good management practices in aquaculture systems, including antimicrobial use. Improper or overuse of antibiotics in aquaculture may impact other organisms and can lead to the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the local environment which could impact human health.
