|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
Available to students admitted in the Graduate Certificate of Science, Graduate Diploma
of Science, Master of Science, Master of Science (Professional), Graduate Certificate
of Development Practice, Graduate Diploma of Development Practice or Master of Development
This subject discusses the factors which should be considered for the design of a
system for culturing aquatic organisms. It addresses fundamental principles and concepts
rather than describing how to grow a particular species. Therefore, as a result of
studying this subject, students will be able to complete a design for a system for
culturing any aquatic species. A sound knowledge of aquaculture practices will be
assumed. This subject shares lectures, tutorials and practical classes with AQ3008.
- to define the requirements for selecting a site for an aquaculture enterprise;
- to describe and select appropriate forms of infrastructure for an aquaculture enterprise;
- to describe the requirements for and parameters to be considered in the development
and operation of an aquaculture system.
|Students enrolling in this subject should have an undergraduate degree in a relevant
discipline (eg marine biology, biology or aquaculture) or have acquired equivalent
knowledge through other study or industry experience. They should have an excellent
understanding of science subjects including basic biology, chemistry, aquaculture
