Module description

The principal aquaculture environments are reviewed, emphasis being placed on physico-chemical processes, community structure and function. The relationships between aquaculture and the environment are explored, with particular reference to the dependency of aquaculture on environmental goods and services for sustainable site selection and use. Environmental impacts of aquaculture and its remediation are introduced with a view to its assessment, quantification and environmental risk.


Learning outcomes

Students completing the module will be able to:

  • Recognise the relationship between aquaculture and the environment
  • Assess and undertake basic measurement of the major impacts of aquaculture on the environment
  • Apply the principles of appropriate site selection for the enhanced sustainability of aquaculture


Module organisation

The module will be taught as a series of seminars, lectures, laboratory practical sessions, and field trips studying freshwater and marine environments at Howietoun fish farm and fishery and Campbelltown loch, respectively. The use of sampling equipment from land and sea will be a feature. Students will be expected to make presentations during the module and work alone and within groups.
