Entry requirements will normally include an undergraduate degree in a biological discipline or related field such as environmental science.
Aquaculture Masters degrees provide opportunities to specialise in areas such as marine spatial planning, fish nutrition, and fish disease diagnosis and treatment. Most courses focus on the global implications of Fish Farming, meaning you will gain experience in dealing with a wide variety of fish species in different contexts and conditions.
