Courses Offered


ABT 161-Water Quality Management for Aquaculture (Winter, 3 Units)
The goal of this class is to provide students with basic principles of water chemistry and water treatment processes as they relate to aquacultural systems. A paper-based term project will be conducted throughout the quarter:

The students will conduct mass balances on water quality parameters during the culture of an aquatic species of their own interest. The project should preferably be designed based on an actual case they are currently or planning to work on. The scale of the project could vary from a fish farm to a home aquarium.

EBS 189B-Aquacultural Engineering (Spring, 4 Units)
The goal of this class is to teach students how to examine the procedures for the design and evaluation of aquaculture operations and to let students apply engineering concepts from ABT 161 and from this course in the design and evaluation of aquaculture operations. There are two paper-based term projects for this class: Aquacultural Engineering Project (AEP) and Aquaculture Systems Design Project (ASDP):

Aquacultural Engineering Project (AEP)
The students will select an aquacultural engineering topic and conduct a critical review on a peer-reviewed paper selected by the instructor related to the topic and present it in the class.

Aquaculture Systems Design Project (ASDP)
The students will design an aquaculture system and develop the operation strategy for the production of the organism of their choices. The overall design needs to include technical, economic, biological, and legal or social considerations.

ANS 136-Techniques & Practices of Fish Culture (Fall, 3 Units)
The goal of this class is to teach students the basic knowledge of aquaculture techniques and provide them with hands-on experience in the culture of aquatic animals. The laboratories focus on the design and construction of animal culture systems, as well as the daily maintenance and care of animals and culture systems.
