Aquaculture Production JFA509

Introduction

Students will gain knowledge and understanding of the practical and theoretical concepts involved in the production of current and future commercially important aquatic species (including molluscs, crustaceans and finfish). Students will be able to relate the biology of culture species to the different strategies employed in their production (from juvenile to market). Students will recognise how the culture environment is managed to optimise the growout performance of different culture species and be able to identify and respond to common problems encountered during aquaculture production cycles.
