AQUACULTURE Online Course

 aquacultureAquaculture involves cultivating freshwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. Analyze the care and breeding of freshwater fish. Learn the importance of aquaculture. Manage an aquaculture business for fresh water fish. Improve your knowledge of this important course. Improve your job outlook in this field.

Develop the ability to manage freshwater aquaculture business. The main market of aquaculture is the farming business of fish and crustaceans for human consumption. The course is covering: water (eg, source, purity, flow, temperature, dissolved oxygen), stocking rates, spawning, check stock, stripping, fertilization, hatching, growth stage, feeding, harvesting, stocking and more.
