Aquatic Animal Nutrition and Food Safety

Dr Kim Jauncey

This topic gives you the chance to gain understanding of the principles of aquatic animal nutrition. This topic covers the major nutritional needs of aquatic animals and feeding needs over a number of different aquaculture systems ranging from extensive and semi-intensive pond systems to intensive re-circulating and cage aquaculture systems in both temperate and tropical climes. Feed formulation, manufacture and practical husbandry provide relevant background. Against a climate of increasing consumer concerns about food safety, we address this hot topic as well as the concept of relative risk.
