Abstract The Institute of Aquaculture brings together cross-disciplinary researchers to meet the wide range of training challenges faced as the global aquaculture industry grows. The Institute offers training in a range of academic levels from short courses, aimed at farm operatives, to BSc (Hons), MSc and PhD levels. The focus of training at the Institute is on promoting a holistic approach, emphasising the importance of understanding the aquatic production system as a whole as well as detailed knowledge of specific pathogens. To make training more accessible, the Institute has made the provision of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) a strategic objective and provides distance learning and flexible study options.
