At Through this, I was able to maintain fish

 At an early age, I developed my interest in
marine life and decided to be a biology scholar. Over ten years, as a hobby, I
have cultured cold-water species, and tropical water species. Through this, I
was able to maintain fish under adequate water condition and observed their
behavior under different stress factors. Furthermore, I acquaint myself with
their biology and this has enhanced my knowledge about aquatic life.


During outbreaks, I gained a strong
interest in diseases as I monitored behavioral interactions between fish and
their pathogen agents. This offered me essential information about how should
assess the clinical signs observed in an animal and diagnose the problem.
Afterwards, I would often read up on how different pathogens interact with animals,
how immune system response to disease and how possibly the pathogen can
occurred again. Additionally, I kept myself updated with new inventions about
different kinds of treatments to cure diseases. As an undergraduate student, I
majored in microbiology at Umm-al Qura University at Saudi Arabia. Through
lectures and practical work, my interest towards aquatic pathobiology grew
significantly. I learned a lot about different kinds of pathogens and how they
react depending on the condition of the water quality, nutrients level,
suspended solids, oxygen level, temperature, salinity and pH. At this point, I
determined to specialize in aquatic pathobiology and wanted to further my
knowledge by learning molecular techniques that would maintain the health of an

I decided to further my education at
the University of Miami, majoring in aquaculture. There I was able to enhance
my experience and knowledge on aquaculture even further. I gained massive
knowledge about high market value species such as Cobia, Mahi-mahi, Florida
pompano, Nassau grouper and Japanese flounder. Working on my project, I learned
the advantages and disadvantages of multiple systems, including RAS and
flow-through. I observed all portions of the life cycle from spawning, larval
rearing, weaning and broodstock. In all life stages, disease is a constant
factor. It is able to infiltrate any system and must be addressed accordingly.
