Masters degrees in Fish Farming and Aquaculture provide postgraduate training in the efficient rearing of different fish breads for commercial sale. This will include exploring sustainable aquaculture through issues such as environmental protection, fish health, and genetic modification.
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.
Experience in this field makes you suitable for positions in both the private and public sectors, agro-industry, shipping, and governing bodies. As research training is a component of most Masters courses, you can also consider undertaking further research at PhD level.
