Content

In SLE217 students will develop a sound understanding and technical knowledge of nutritional biochemistry and physiology principles in the context of aquaculture nutrition and industry practices. Assessing aquaculture feeds, feed management, feeding processes and stock performances, students will explore the constraints and potentialities in relation to seafood quality, markets and their role in human health benefits and risks. Learning and assessment activities in this unit challenge the student to explore a variety of sector specific technical and ethical professional practices including certification schemes, social, environmental and economic issues. While honing their knowledge of diverse communities, markets and culture in a global context, students will be expected to analyse and synthetise information, connecting theory to practice, critically thinking and developing applied skills for problem solving in the aquaculture industry.
