Abstract
Aquaculture training is carried out at a number of levels, using a wide variety of methodologies and techniques. Although training is expensive, a lack of training can result in both lost opportunities, and actual loss through inefficiency and costly mistakes. To maximise the benefit of training programmes it is essential to ensure that they are properly targeted and adequately meet the needs of participants and secondary beneficiaries such as employers. This can be achieved by applying training needs analysis, a clear statement of aims and objectives for every part of the training, and a thorough evaluation process to monitor the value of each training programme.
