Education of the Aquaculture and Fisheries Group

Within Wageningen University & Research, the Aquaculture and Fisheries Group is responsible for academic teaching and research in the field of aquaculture and fisheries.

We participate in education at BSc, MSc and PhD level, often closely aligned with our research. Aquaculture and Fisheries contributes to undergraduate teaching in the Bachelor of Science (BSc) Animal Sciences. A large part of our education efforts on aquaculture and fisheries is embedded in the programme of the ‘Master of Aquaculture and Marine Resource Management’ (MAM), which aims to train academic professionals in the field of sustainable use, conservation and restoration of marine and aquatic ecosystems and resources.

"Aquaculture and Fisheries" is also one of the "biological" chairs at WU, providing a graduation outlet for Biology students.

At PhD level our education efforts are embedded in the Graduate School ‘Wageningen Institute of Animal Sciences’ (WIAS) and include several short training courses, such as workshops on Fish Immunology & Vaccination, Nutrition, and Recirculating Systems
