The aim is to educate candidates in biotechnological skills in general, thus qualifying them for careers in a range of organisations including those whose focus is on innovation, commercial development and value creation of marine resources in processes and industry.

We are preoccupied with exploiting the advantage we enjoy as a nation in the form of access to enormous marine resources. Most of the organisms that comprise the marine biodiversity are still little researched. These bio-resources can be the source of unique biomolecules (enzymes, secondary metabolites, proteins/peptides, marine fats and carbohydrates) and the associated genetic codes.

Good relationships with the biotechnological industry are exploited to adapt the teaching, and ensure that it is relevant for commercial development and innovation. Many newly established businesses in the region have their origins in the biotechnological community in Tromsø and the sector is expanding. The programme will give you much sought-after expertise....

What can you use this qualification for? Manager in the fish farming industry, quality control, governmental or extension positions, developing new aquaculture species, managing breeding programs, sales or administration. The Master degree is also a stepping stone to an academic career. What will you learn?

The program gives you broad and interdisciplinary strength and specialization in subjects of your choice. We offer courses in fish breeding, fish nutrition and planning and design of aquacultural plants, and you will get insight and knowledge about how those components/factors affect the effectiveness of production and influence the economic yield.

About

The study starts with introductory courses in physiology, health care, and water quality, before the fundamentals of genetics and breeding, fish nutrition and also practical and theoretical aspects of fish production and technology is covered. The aim of the study is to give the students broad practical and theoretical knowledge in different fields, before they complete their master thesis within a focus area, which can be chosen from fish breeding, fish nutrition, production technology or another area of interest, e.g. water or product quality. The master thesis project is normally taken over one year and offers great flexibility in terms of project type and location.... [-]
