DESCRIPTION - ACCEPTED STUDENTS CATEGORIES: Students will gain a broad understanding of the key principles of aquaculture and an in-depth knowledge of the many major scientific, technological and social challenges facing the sustainable development of the global aquaculture industry, including fin-fish, crustaceans, bivalves and seaweed. Key challenges influencing the sustainability of the industry include; environmental issues, nutrition, feed formulation, disease, welfare, reproduction and genetics, product safety, ecotoxicology, aquaculture systems (e.g. recirculation and integrated multi-trophic aquaculture), biosecurity, spatial planning and regulation.
Students will also be provided with key ‘life’ skills training, such as presentation, networking, social media, entrepreneurship (in association with the Scottish Institute for Enterprise), which will be tried and tested throughout the program.
This unique program will, therefore, equip students with the essential skills required to establish, manage and/ or assess aquaculture activities either from a research, public authority or commercial perspective and to communicate confidently with industry representatives or the public sector.
