ABWAK Cephalopod Keepers’ Workshop

Sea Life Weymouth - Friday 10th May 2024 


ABWAK is glad to be working with the BIAZA Cephalopod Focus Group to be able to run our very first ever cephalopod keeper workshop, hosted at Sea Life Weymouth. 

With cephalopods recently being added to the sentience bill the standardisation and collaboration between collections is vitally important. This workshop will provide a forum where current husbandry, welfare and nutrition will be discussed. In addition practical skills investigating octopus enrichment, habitat design and anatomy will be delivered to attendees.

Topics include:

  • Management of Environment.
  • Anatomy and Health.
  • Nutrition.
  • Tank Design.
  • Behaviour.
  • Enrichment.
  • Welfare.

Advertised workshop content may be subject to change.

Bookings will not be confirmed unless online registration is completed, and full payment has been made.

Prices will be:

ABWAK members: £25

BIAZA members: £25

Non-members: £45

Refreshments and lunch are included in the price.

ABWAK provides grants for our members to help fund attendance at our events. Check out the grants page in the members' area of our website for application forms.
