Our new programme of Freshwater Courses for 2017 is now available online and was sent to members with the Winter issue of FBA News.
Our ever popular hands-on courses equip you with the skills and confidence to sample and identify freshwater plants and animals, and provide you with key field and laboratory experience. Tutored by leading experts in freshwater biology and ecology, our courses use a selection of authoritative FBA identification keys.
The University of Cumbria and Freshwater Biological Association have joined forces to work together and collaborate towards improved education, research and business. In signing an MOU, both organisations have strengthened their relationship which has developed over several years. With a shared interest in business, economic development, education, biology and conservation there are lots of synergies for both organisations to explore in the future.
