Principles and Practices of Ecological Aquaculture: Concepts and Tools for the Evolution of the Blue Revolution
Professor & Chair of the Department of Marine Sciences, and Director of the Marine Science Center, University of New England
This intensive course introduces by lecture and in an interactive, group study fashion, the transdisciplinary study of the world’s aquaculture ecosystems. It examines the principles of ecology (natural and social ecology) as they relate to the ecological designs, structures, functions, and social ecologies of integrated aquaculture farming ecosystems. The class studies examples from the world’s major aquaculture species and discuss their history (and “her-story”), natural and social ecologies, current status, and futures. This course also includes hours of interactive classroom and evening work by students in group studies.
