This module provides an overview of aquatic ecosystems with emphasis on physio-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.  The subjects covered are coastal and freshwater environments, environmental impacts of aquaculture and environmental risk assessment practices. In addition, there are two ‘virtual’ practical sessions. The first is based on sampling and analysing the aspects of effective site selction for environmental sustainability, based on an example from the West Coast of Scotland.  The second is based on Howietoun Fisheries to investigate water quality of freshwater fish farming.
