Aquaculture and Fisheries Group

It is our mission to be leading in academic research and education on sustainable Aquaculture and Fisheries, with a focus on society relevant questions and on the interactions between aquatic organisms and their environment.

Trends in Marine Resource Management and Aquaculture

Sea cucumber aquaculture is one of the trends that is discussed in the new course ‘Trends in Aquaculture and Marine Resources Management’. Two of the other topics are plant-based feeds and 'balanced harvesting'. Students receive the opportunity to give a lecture and to write a paper about the trend they want to investigate.
