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.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (refer to How do I withdraw from a unit? for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2023 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2023 will be available from the 1st October 2022. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
- Explain hatchery practices based on the biology of key aquaculture species groups .
- Apply and demonstrate knowledge about hatchery practices to the tasks and activities in the hatchery.
- Create and design operational procedures for hatchery activities based on knowledge of hatchery practices.
- Diagnose and solve problems that arise in the hatchery to improve larval production.
