Sustainable Aquaculture

University of St Andrews

Content

Aquaculture is one of the world’s fastest growing industries, with an average growth rate of over 8% per year for the past 10 years. More than half of all the aquatic food species consumed are now produced from aquaculture and it is estimated that a further 40 million tonnes of aquatic food will be required by 2030 to supply the continuing increase in demand.

The Sustainable Aquaculture distance learning modular programme is taught part time via an online e-learning platform offering online tutorial support, direct email contact with tutors, video streams and access to student bulletin boards. This structure allows students the maximum flexibility to complete their studies while continuing in their employment.

You can exit after semester 1 with PgCert Sustainable Aquaculture.

You can exit after semester 2 with PgDip Sustainable Aquaculture.
