The subject teaches the principles of aquatic animal physiology and provides insight into the mechanisms involved in the stress, health, growth and reproduction of aquatic animals. A key focus is on how physiological systems respond to important environmental factors and the significance of animal adaptations in their ability to cope with environment stressors, whether it is a managed environment, such as in aquaculture, or in the natural environment.
|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 and statistics|
