An introduction to scientific, legislative, and market-driven challenges to farming organisms in aquatic systems.
This paper demonstrates how physical, chemical and biological processes interact in aquatic systems and control productivity of marine and freshwater aquaculture systems. An introduction to aquaculture production systems from husbandry through to processing and product development will be provided, along with practical and technical skills necessary for designing and maintaining aquaculture facilities. The paper further aims for participants to develop an understanding of the cultural, legislative, market and food-safety framework in which aquaculture operates through trips to local aquaculture facilities.
