This subject discusses aquaculture in tropical regions of the World and Australia.
It will provide information about the status and methods of production of the major
species cultured in this region and opportunities for new species culture. Topics
include: Marine finfish; Freshwater finfish; Crustaceans; Seaweeds and Molluscs. This
subject shares lectures and field work with AQ2002.
- assess the current status and major constraints for aquaculture species in the tropics;
- describe general biology and major production methods for key aquaculture species
in tropical regions and particularly tropical Australia;
- evaluate the benefits and limitations of the practical aspects of tropical aquaculture
based on evidence drawn from visits to aquaculture farms and research institutes.
|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
