In the aquaculture course we want to discuss the background, importance, and consequences of this industry. The main focus is on marine aquaculture, but to some extent we will also discuss inland aquaculture. As a marine ecologist I put a particular focus on the environment. We will discuss the various problems (eutrophication, organic loading of the sea floor, oxygen depletion, pathogens, medication, social and animal welfare etc.), as well as potential (partial) solutions, such as extractive and IMTA approaches, recirculation etc. For an understanding of the processes we need to delve into biology, and also to some extent into chemistry. But don’t fear! Its all manageable!
