Mariculture

The graduate study in Mariculture lasts two years, i.e. four semesters (120 ECTS credits). Upon completion of the graduate study, the student acquires the academic degree of Master in Mariculture. Finishing the graduate study, a student can opt for the postgraduate study Applied Marine Science.

Career prospects in aquaculture are multiple and primarily involve the possibility of employment directly related to production, such as cultivation, maintenance, feeding, fishing, transportation etc., but also those related to the management of spawning and farming centres. Smaller farming facilities in aquaculture are mostly managed by one expert in charge of the complete farming process, including company and financial management. Practical experience worldwide indicates that graduate experts in aquaculture may find employment in numerous accompanying services to aquaculture production, starting from the supply of equipment and food, the consumer sales of fish and shellfish, through to consultancy in commercial enterprises and in state institutions. Upon completion of the graduate study in Mariculture students will have gained the skills required for independent work on the introduction of new species of aquatic organisms into commercial aquaculture production....
