During this course you will become familiar with detailed aspects of growing fish and shellfish. You will learn about growing healthy animals in a ethical and environmentally conscientious way. You will cover important bio security requirements and develop plans to implement these.

Your hatchery and production knowledge will be increased through the middle of the year before you finish the last half of the year getting outdoors and stuck into it.
