Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject introduces you to the production of various species of microalgae (phytoplankton) and zooplankton in aquaculture facilities. You will develop an understanding of invertebrate zoology and taxonomy, the general features and composition of freshwater and marine algae and invertebrates. Key areas to be investigated include the establishment and maintenance of culture systems of a wide variety of species and their commercial potential. Students will develop knowledge and practical skills relevant to industry including quantification, harvesting and preservation of micro-algae and zoo plankton in natural water.
