Aquaculture is a fast growing sector, especially in Asia. Growth has often come with detrimental ecological and social impacts. In other parts of the world, the aquaculture sector has difficulties taking off. This course learns professionals involved in aquaculture sector development with making sector management plans for a certain region or ecosystem that take ecological, socio-economic and governance aspects into consideration. It informs you about the possibilities of more intensive aquaculture techniques such as recirculation systems, better management practices and environmental certification standards that are growing in importance in the western food market.

Upon completion of the course you will:

  • Learn how to make aquaculture management plans for an area using the FAO ecosystem approach to aquaculture;
  • Gain up-to-date insights about the possibilities and design principles of more intensive aquaculture techniques such as recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS);
  • Be familiar with better management practices and with certification standards.
