Что я буду изучать?

Imagine jumping right into a leadership role in one of the most growing industries in Canada upon earning your degree. That's the opportunity you get when you study Aquaculture at Dalhousie’s Agricultural campus in Truro, N.S. This industry includes both food production and environmental and resource conservation.

What will I learn?

Completing studies in Aquaculture at the Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture blends classroom, laboratory, project and field work. Students will develop strengths and gain knowledge in three main areas: aquaculture, aquatic science and hands-on experience.

First year students will begin with courses that form the foundation of the BSc (Agriculture), while taking specialized aquaculture-focused courses in upper years. In fourth year, students have the opportunity to design and implement their own research project. Through these opportunities, students can set themselves up for a successful career in the growing field of Aquaculture or for future studies.

Sample courses:

  • Fish Health
  • Shellfish Production
  • Fish Physiology

Aquaculture students have access to our Aquaculture Centre, located right on the Agricultural campus. The Centre provides students and researchers with well-equipped teaching laboratories, wet and dry labs, an algal production lab and aquatic rearing facilities.

Careers and future study:

The global demand for seafood is rising and by 2030, more than half the world’s seafood will be farmed. A major in Aquaculture gives you the skills and expertise to tackle this challenge head on with sustainability in mind. Your education will give you access to professional and career opportunities such as:

  • algologist or aquarist
  • hatchery manager
  • aquaculturist
  • aquaculture technician
  • aquaculture marketing and sales
  • animal health product development
  • food safety

Future studies may include programs at the graduate level such as a Master of Science (Agriculture) specializing in Aquaculture, or a PhD in Agricultural Sciences.
