Production Environments


This half-module details the varying culture requirements crucial for health, growth and condition of different cultured species, and how selective breeding can be used to domesticate and adapt species to living in the farm environment and improve the quality of the end product. All levels of aquaculture intensification from extensive rural ponds to intensive tank and cage based systems are covered. You will also learn to sample and analyse farm water quality and assess the quality of the farm environment.

This module is taken by Aquaculture BSc students only.
