AQS 232 : Reproduction and Nutrition of Aquatic Animals
Examines the reproductive strategies of fishes and invertebrates in a controlled environment and the manipulation of environmental and physiological parameters that initiate reproduction. The nutritional requirement of selected aquatic animals throughout their life history is explored. Industry standards for food handling and HACCP requirements are also discussed.
- Identify common reproductive strategies of selected fishes and invertebrates.
- Construct an environmental protocol to induce gamete maturation in commonly cultured fishes and invertebrates.
- Apply rearing techniques for the care of offspring of commonly cultured fishes and invertebrates.
- Formulate a suitable dietary and feeding program for aquatic animals.
