Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

An in-depth treatment of the principles of aquacultural engineering: mass balances, waste treatment design, gas conditioning, production economics and system design. Some coverage of fish processing, nutrition and fish health in context of global and local demand is presented, all in the context of engineering analysis and design. This course is intended to build upon previous coursework.  Course includes "hand on" fish cutting lab and weekly audio-tutorial lectures.

When Offered Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment limited to: at least junior standing.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: one semester of physics and chemistry.

Course Attribute (CU-SBY)
Satisfies Requirement Satisfies BE and EnvE capstone design requirement.

Comments No-one is allowed to add course after 2nd lecture. Two required field trips require class to return to campus at 7 p.m.  Lectures are web based with required reading from course text, "Recirculating Aquaculture", Timmons and Ebeling (3rd Ed., 2013, Ithaca Publishing Company, LLC. Ithaca, NY).  Course is intended for those considering a career in aquaculture or closely related field.
