I studied fish parasitology at Mississippi State University (1998). My dissertation concerned examining the intermediate hosts of a protozoan parasite of catfish that causes proliferative gill disease, with an eye towards finding ways of limiting population growth of those intermediate hosts. Less hosts=less parasites=less of a catastrophic infection.
