During this course you will become familiar with detailed aspects of growing fish and shellfish. You will learn about growing healthy animals in a ethical and environmentally conscientious way. You will cover important bio security 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, as well as getting 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 pathway you straight into industry.
