Ichthyology is an upper level course covering fish ecology, systematics, and conservation. It also includes a laboratory portion, where students learn to identify local fish species. Field experience is gained during field trips where students personally seine fish in local waterways, gaining hands-on experience and appreciation for this diverse group of living organisms. This is a new course for Ohio Dominican, I taught it for the first time during the summer of 2015. I have posted a webpage with pictures and a full species list.
