bachelor of aquaculture and marine conservation

At NMIT, we bring together marine conservation and aquaculture to start addressing solutions to the threats to many of our planet's marine and freshwater environments. These threats have come from overfishing, pollution, habitat destruction, climate change and more. Education about marine conservation is critical to start addressing these global and local issues.

Students are encouraged to think further and be taught about tropical marine environments. All this knowledge is combined to create a greater understanding of ecology and environmental impacts to further progress momentum into the marine conservation and sustainable aquaculture space.

The programme was designed with industry to provide graduates with practical aquatic ecology and marine conservation skills and knowledge. You can also specialise in aquaculture, marine conservation, aquaculture industry management or a combination that best suits your career aspirations and interests. You will also gain communication and operations management skills so you can contribute to the aquaculture industry, locally, nationally or internationally.

If you are already in the industry in New Zealand and looking to get a qualification, talk to us about how we can make that work for you to study alongside your employment.
