This unit assumes knowledge of aquaculture production and aquatic animal biology
The unit provides students with a detailed understanding of aquatic animal feeds and nutrition from selection of ingredients to the impact of feeds on product quality. The relationships between nutrition and farming practice, feed formulation, physiology and biochemistry of aquatic animals are covered. Students will be encouraged to critically assess and use nutritional information, experimental design and nutrition models. Students will gain a fundamental understanding of nutritional science and understand how to use this in commercial and research situations.
