Dr. Mike Walsh and group

From left to right are Dr. Mike Walsh, co-director of the UF Aquatic Animal Health program, Dr. Stephen Cassel, who just completed his third year of residency in the AAH program, and Patrick Thompson, a AAH technician. They are pictured with an award the AAH group recently received from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s Southeast U.S. Marine Stranding Network. The award was given in recognition of the UF group’s “extraordinary efforts” in a pilot whale mass stranding event that took place in Southwest Florida in January. Walsh assisted in evaluations and euthanasias and then over the next few days the group was involved in recovery of live animals as well as in helping to perform necropsies of animals that had died. Samples from the stranding were analyzed by Dr. Nicole Stacy and the UF College of Veterinary Medicine clinical pathology lab. (Photo courtesy of Dr. Mike Walsh)
