To fulfil the needs of a growing human population, the production of food and other products from marine and freshwater environments must increase sustainably. Declines in wild fisheries and the growth in the aquaculture sector mean that now more than half of all seafood consumed throughout the world comes from aquaculture. The sustainable growth of aquaculture and the restoration of wild fisheries are two of the greatest challenges facing the planet – many of the solutions will be provided by scientists. Aquaculture and Fisheries scientists and managers need to have a good understanding of biology, chemistry, ecology, management, oceanography, and statistics. You will learn the fundamental aspects of these subjects during the first two years of the degree. As you progress through the degree, more specialist subjects such as fisheries, aquaculture, environmental and ecosystem management, and food science will be introduced.
