During this programme, you will become familiar with detailed aspects of growing fish and shellfish. You will learn about growing healthy animals in an ethical and environmentally conscientious way. You will cover important biosecurity requirements and develop plans to implement these.

Your hatchery and production knowledge will be increased through the middle of the year before you finish the last half of the year getting outdoors and stuck into it.

You will complete boating and maritime qualifications and get into things like farm maintenance, knots, sea survival and navigation. You will then round up the course with a 2-week work placement which will be invaluable to take you straight into industry-related employment.

This programme is also delivered online for learners nationwide and can be delivered directly in workplaces across Te Tauihu. See below for more information.
