About this course
Aquaculture is a rapidly growing primary industry around the world which now supplies more than half the seafood consumed in the world today. This course forms part of the of our Certificate in Aquaculture but can also be taken individually by students wanting to develop a better understanding water quality and the need to monitor this and other aspects of the culture environment.
The basis for all aquaculture ventures is water as it is the media in which aquatic animals live. In fact, the success of any aquaculture operation will largely be the result of good monitoring of water quality and the culture environment.
This is a great introduction for anyone new to the industry and ideal for new workers wanting to learn about handling and harvesting operations of fish in aquaculture
