Aquaculture

Step into an exciting career within the aquaculture industry by starting your journey studying at our state-of-the-art Batavia Coast Maritime Institute in Geraldton. Aquaculture could lead you to working in a hatchery, nurseries, or a sea cage or pond facility — even pet shops, public aquaria, zoos or other facilities with aquatic animals — in a range of environments including on and offshore culture facilities.

You’ll learn about handling and harvesting stock; preparing stock for live transport; controlling pests, predators and diseases; monitoring stock and environmental conditions; maintaining and manipulating the water environment and applying chemicals and biological agents producing algal cultures; and working effectively in the seafood industry.
