Fish Forensics
Fish Forensics - Learn the science behind fishing
IMAS Fisheries Lecturer Dr James Haddy is opening his Fish Science Lab to conduct one of his amazingly entertaining fish dissections.

What you can learn:

How old is a fish?
How fast do they grow?
How do you tell a male from a female?
How do you tell a breeder?
Do fish see colour? How do they detect sound?

You're invited to attend James's one-hour fish biology and dissection class which will be held prior to our Launceston Fisheries Forum.

DATE: Thursday, 27 September, 5:00 - 6:00pm

VENUE: Science Lab, UTAS Science Block, Newnham Campus
