Aquaculture Hatchery Production KSM313

Introduction

This unit will integrate knowledge about larval and early life history biology with the practices and processes that underpin hatchery operations for algal, molluscan, crustacean and finfish production. This unit will expose students to a range of practices across key tropical and temperate aquaculture species, including the management of broodstock, management of live feeds, timing in production of juvenile animals, and hatchery hygiene.
