Aquatic Animal Production Systems

Prof Dave Little and Mr John Bostock

This topic provides a wide range of information on aquaculture production systems including system design for both land and water based systems of many aquatic species. The production system is explored from the hatchery through to grow-out. Engineering components are considered including pond, tank and cage and recirculation systems. Design aspects also consider water treatment. Additionally, this topic also provides an insight into farm construction management and will be of interest to those wishing to gain more experience developing farm systems.
