Aquaculture: The Dynamics of Sustainable Food Production

The challenge to feed the world's ever-increasing population is being met with the science of aquaculture. Participants will learn the fundamentals of rearing animals such as tilapia and oysters as sources of protein. Topics include the biology and genetics of cultured organisms, designs of recirculating aquaculture systems, logistics of protein "farms," and relevant concerns in raising animals for human consumption. Come learn how to bring the field of aquaculture into your classroom, engaging your students in exciting research that may pave the way for their future careers!
