If you want to develop your scientific knowledge and are interested in learning about captive husbandry, fish biology and disease, fisheries, aquariums, aqua culture, conservation and sustainability, our Aquatic Ecosystems and Fisheries Management course is a great way to prepare for employment across this diverse sector.
You’ll have the chance to gain experience working with a range of aquatics, from exploring the types of habitat and species to looking deeper into fish biology, disease and health related best practice.
This training route is a great way to gain the practical skills and knowledge that employers are looking for. As our specialist staff have all worked in industry and have key industry links, it offers a great pathway to higher level fish based study. Many of our students go straight onto university to follow a range of interests, including marine biology, freshwater biology and environmental science or into employment once they’ve completed this course.
Our campus is well equipped with a wide range of on-site aquatic bodies and industry recognised equipment that complements the wealth of knowledge the teaching staff provide in the classroom. We have excellent support from local fisheries and professional anglers, which allows our students to work alongside the best in the field. The college is ideally located in the heart of Cheshire with great links to Manchester, Liverpool, Chester, Birmingham and surrounding areas, perfect for our regular field trips and off-site practical sessions.
