This subject is a hands-on, teamwork based subject. It covers design, operation and
evaluation of the success of hatchery culture systems as well as techniques for production
and use of various live feeds and larval culture of aquaculture species.
- to develop skills in preparing and presenting major technical reports;
- to develop skills in the critical assessment of methodology and evaluation of success
in hatchery production;
- to develop the problem solving and organisational skills required in commercial hatchery
- to engage students in realistic aquaculture hatchery and larval rearing production;
- to provide experience in various aspects of aquaculture hatchery protocol;
- to provide practical skills required for larval rearing of aquaculture species;
- to provide the practical skills required for production of various live feeds.
|Students enrolling in this subject should have an undergraduate degree in relevant
discipline (eg biology or environmental science) 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 and statistics.
