This unit provides an overview of aquaculture recirculation, cage, pond, tank and raceway systems and their associated technologies such as aeration, water conditioning, biofiltration, fish pumps, graders, counters, feeding systems etc both in Australia and overseas; specifically their working principles, components, problems and application to the production of aquaculture species. This unit also covers the principals and use of biotechnologies and digital technologies that support cultured plant/animal health and performance, and environmental sustainability across production stages. While the content delivered to students in the undergraduate and masters unit will be similar, there will be clear differences in assessment (more detailed, in-depth and complex) and learning expectations (more technical and critical thinking) for KSM613. Assessment details will be provided to students separate to the unit outline.
