NRC597SA is a senior level online course offered online through the Sustainable Food and Farming program and the Continuing and Professional Education program at UMass. The course explores concepts in sustainable aquaculture such as species and system selection in a manner accepting the limitations placed on small-scale fish producers in Massachusetts and New England. In line with these limitations, the course focuses heavily on land-based recirculating aquaculture systems and their potential for use within the region's aquaculture industry.

Aquaculture is an applied science. It is important for universities to maintain collaborative working agreements with the industries they serve. UMass aquaculture is active within the State’s small but growing commercial aquaculture sector. An area of particular interest concerns the role Massachusetts could play as a technology and education hub for global aquaculture.
