Module Description

This module provides an overview of aquaculture production systems, their status and development; it covers extensive/intensive land and water based systems, hatchery rearing and on-growing of fish, molluscs, crustaceans and algae.  Engineering principles and design and operation of key systems and components, including hydraulics, pumps and pipe flows, heat and gas transfer; soils, materials and constructions, pond, tank and cage design, special systems, recycle system and water treatment design are covered. An insight into project and farm construction management is also provided.


Learning outcomes

By the end of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Identify design, operational and management principles, key systems and components essential for effective aquaculture production.
  • Apply concepts of production planning to aquaculture systems
  • Apply key issues of dimensioning and design, and the specification and sizing of key components to aquaculture systems
  • Link components into reliable and cost-effective aquaculture systems
  • Develop choices in designs and cost options, and carry out selections
  • Describe the key aspects of project development and commissioning 


Module organisation

The module is based around a series of lectures and workshops, the first week focusing on the principles and components of key system types, and the second based more on workshops exploring how major systems are set up and operated in practice. In addition, each participant will be required to choose a specific aquaculture project, starting with a defined objective and developed to an outline design and management proposal.
