If cultivating aquatic plants and animals and expanding the development of aquatic farming around the world appeals to you, a Master of Science in Aquaculture and Fisheries may be of interest to you. This postgraduate program offers a wide range of employment opportunities and research options in the world of marine life.

You may be wondering, what is an MSc in Aquaculture and Fisheries? This advanced educational program provides individuals with the comprehensive training and education required for the organization, conservation and sustainable consumption of oceanic resources such as fish, marine mammals, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Individuals who receive this postgraduate degree can help improve current aquaculture systems and work to develop new and innovative ways of supportable fish farming.

Choosing to study aquaculture can be beneficial for students as they can make a difference in how marine sources are used as profitable resources for food and other products. Graduates can also learn essential skills such as data acquisition and interpretation as they uncover how the interactions between humans and their marine environment can have lasting implications on the world and its sea life reserves.

The cost to pursue a master’s degree in aquaculture and fisheries can vary depending on your enrollment status, your university and the amount of financial aid you receive. Students are encouraged to research their prospective school directly in order to understand the full cost of tuition and fees.

Individuals who receive a Master of Science in Aquaculture and Fisheries can gain employment as aquaculture technicians, working in freshwater and marine farms studying fish nutrition, genetics and pathology. Graduates can also oversee hatchery maintenance and operation, farming methods, and species research. Other alumni choose to pursue employment opportunities with conservation organizations, or they may choose the avenue of researching and teaching for universities and colleges.

If you are interested in pursuing an advanced degree online that will help reduce the environmental impact of aquatic farming and support the development of sustainable aquaculture and fishery practices, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The Division of Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences, and the College of Agriculture, Community and the Sciences at Kentucky State University offer a Master of Science Degree in Aquaculture/Aquatic Sciences. Aquaculture is the rearing of aquatic organisms under controlled or semi-controlled conditions. Interest in Aquaculture has increased worldwide as fish consumption has increased concurrently with decreasing catches of wild fish. In Kentucky and the southern United States, aquaculture production focuses on raising freshwater species commercially. The curriculum meets criteria established by the University Programs Standards Committee of the American Fisheries Society for Fish Culture Specializations. -

A long-range crop The breeding of aquatic species has not stopped growing. It is an activity that generates food, raw materials, and industrial products all over the world, but which in Mexico takes on special importance since it is one of the five countries with the greatest biodiversity on the planet. With more than 5.1 million square kilometers of marine surface alone, our country has a potential based on hundreds of plant and animal species. Thanks to this, the study of organisms from microalgae to fish allows the production of food more efficiently, both for the national market and for export. And because generating knowledge in the field of genetics, molecular biology, virology, among many others, is a permanent need for this sector, higher education institutions assume their role of providing tools to promote and strengthen it. Accordingly, the Master of Science in Aquaculture trains qualified people who, from the academic, governmental, or productive sectors, promote the growth of this sector. The knowledge that is developed in the coming years will be decisive to increase the quality of the food and products that we offer to Mexico and the world. -
