Aquaculture, Mariculture and Marine Biology Courses




Aquaculture and mariculture (marine or salt water aquaculture) is the husbandry of fresh and salt water populations of fish, cray, crustaceans and molluscs. Aquaculture can also be incorporated into hydroponic systems to provide a food supply of vegetables/herbs along with fish – this practice is known as aquaponics which is a very popular course.

Aquaculture is one of the fasted growing sectors in agriculture worldwide

Careerline offers four online courses; one each in aquaculture, mariculture and aquaponics, and for students looking for more in-depth study we recommend the Advanced Certificate in Aquaculture.

We also offer 100 hour certificate courses in marine biology – which examines the anatomy, physiology and environment of marine groups.
