Ausgangskompetenzen
Learning Outcome and Competences
Students can
  • differentiate various aquaculture systems and their characteristics.
  • explain the concept of operations of an aquaculture (in particular recirculating aquaculture systems) and assess it quantitatively.
  • name important factors for wish welfare and explain how they are ensured in aquaculture systems.
On a more general level, students
  • can evaluate concepts of operations.
  • have in-depth knowledge of technical systems that involve biological and microbial processes.
  • can explain processes for water treatment.
  • have experienced the challenges for businesses that are created by a regulatory environment, a competitive situation, and ethical principles.
Inhalte
Module Content
Fish biology​
  • Anatomy, physiology, and behavior of fish (with particular emphasis on aquaculture).
  • Requirements for fish husbandry in systems with water treatment
  • Fish health in aquaculture: ectoparasites, infectious diseases, stress, injuries.
  • Reproduction in aquaculture
Technology
  • Process flow diagrams of recirculating aquaculture systems.
  • Mathematical modeling of and material flow analysis of metabolic products in recirculating aquaculture systems.
  • Dimensioning of steps involving microbial processes and their technical control
  • Modelling of gas transfer (O2, CO2, N2)
  • Efficiency and mechanisms of photochemical sterilization
  • Hydraulics: computer-aided calculation of pressure loss in piping systems.
  • Energy balance: metabolic and technical energy flows in recirculating systems.
Operation
  • Operating procedures and terminology in fish production
  • Use of modeling to obtain the most economical age structure of fish stocks in an aquaculture.
  • Quality management of feed: contaminations.
Extended concepts
  • Microalgae as raw material for feed
  • Aquaponics: nutrient recycling from aquaculture systems via plants
  • Economy of polyculture systems
