Course description

<h3>Are you looking to join a school of fish lovers?</h3>
<p>This qualification is the crucial first step towards an exciting career in aquaculture. This course provides students with a range of core skills and knowledge relevant to working in the aquaculture industry. Graduates go on to further studies or working in a range on environments including onshore aquaculture facilities, offshore culture facilities and the ornamental fish industry.</p>
<h4>Gain these skills:</h4>
<ul>
<li>Handling and harvesting stock,</li>
<li>Preparing stock for live transport,</li>
<li>Monitoring stock and environmental conditions,</li>
<li>Producing algal cultures, and</li>
<li>Working effectively in the seafood industry</li>
</ul>
<p>Aquaculture is a fast-growing industry. In fact, The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) issued a report in 2018 stating that ‘aquaculture is fastest growing food production sector worldwide’. Typical entry-level jobs for those holding Certificate II include:</p>
<ul>
<li>Australian and overseas aquaculture farms</li>
<li>Hatcheries and nurseries   </li>
<li>Live post-harvest holding facilities, such as processing plants, wholesalers or </li>
<li>Transporters, pet shops, public aquaria, zoos or other facilities with aquatic animals </li>
</ul>
<h4>Study style</h4>
<p>This course is offered full-time, classroom based in semester 1, and offered via blended, flexible delivery in semester 2.  This enables remote students or students with other commitments to pursue their passion for aquaculture. Flexible delivery includes 2.5 weeks of compulsory practical classes on campus.</p>
<h4>Study in a specialised facility in the maritime heart of Fremantle:</h4>
<p>Fremantle campus features extensive salt and freshwater aquaculture facilities, and experienced staff which offers plenty of relevant hands-on opportunities. Our staff have involved students in the culture and applied research projects of many marine and freshwater organisms over the last two decades including species such as abalone, dhufish, yellowtail kingfish, marron and barramundi.</p>
