Aquaculture is a technologically advanced and export-oriented industry based on biological production with a demand for quality in processes and products. The programme subjects shall develop an understanding of the market and provide an insight into the industry’s role in society and role as an international food producer. The programme subjects shall also lay the foundation for professional competence that can contribute to the industry’s continued growth and development, and teach about framework conditions and national administration of the industry.
Teaching shall be organized so that the individual develops knowledge and skills in the day-to-day running and operation of different types of aquaculture facilities, based on environmental requirements and biological conditions. In addition, teaching shall help develop an understanding of the relationship between biological production, nature’s tolerance limits and human activity. From an ecological, sustainable and ethical perspective, teaching shall help develop the ability to cooperate and to think reflectively, creatively and interdisciplinary.
Teaching in the programme subjects shall embrace the broadness of the Norwegian aquaculture industry in terms of species, types of installations and modes of operation. The teaching shall help develop an understanding of the industry through cooperation with local business, where theory and practice are linked. The programme subjects shall provide the basis for further professional training as an apprentice in aquaculture or via general studies in agriculture, fishing and forestry.
