New technologies in aquaculture (251088)

Nositelj predmeta

Opis predmeta

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the development of aquaculture technology through the introduction of new techniques, methods and innovative technological solutions. Innovative approaches to the design, engineering and construction of breeding systems and their components will be presented and explained through the improvement of control and monitoring of the quality of the breeding environment, the introduction of new species for breeding and the improvement of the genetic material of the existing ones, the improvement of the living conditions and the health status of the cultivated organisms, the improvement of the feed characteristics, treatment of wastewater and other waste materials (by-products), sustainable management of solid waste from primary production and processing processes. The identification of the need for new technologies that improve the efficiency and profitability of certain production processes and those that follow new legal regulations, the need for the sustainability of production processes and the need to create a safe and healthy product will be explained.
