Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will develop knowledge and skills relevant to aquaponics and other multitrophic integrated high-yield aquaculture systems. Theory and practice will be explored by providing students with detailed knowledge of Partitioned Aquaculture Systems (PAS), with particular reference to sustainable, low impact, high yield, and more controllable fish production processes. Students will investigate historical perspectives of, as well as new developments and technologies in multitrophic integrated agri-aquaculture systems with attention to the use of natural resources and environmental sustainability. Theory and practice will provide students with a working knowledge of hydroponic/aquaponic systems, including Nutrient Film Technique (NFT), deep pool systems and raft and flood-drain systems. Students will develop an understanding of biofloc aquaculture and other related emerging technologies.
