Paper Description

As the fastest growing primary industry in the world, aquaculture is much more than simply growing an aquatic product. This course provides a unique experience to learn about the less obvious, but nonetheless, critical factors involved in developing and operating a successful aquaculture venture. In addition, it introduces the cutting edge and future innovations that are bolstering a more sustainable and efficient industry. Students will meet and hear first-hand from experts across a wide range of topics within aquaculture research, local government and commercial industry.
