Two pathologists, from the Universities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, were also invited to share their knowledge on histopathology.

A number of lectures were included on dead animal response (turtle necropsy, data collection, zoonosis, trauma) and live animal response (fisheries interaction, physical exam, sampling, euthanasia, wound management and blood transfusion). Lectures were divided into theoretical and practical sessions.
