In 2013, a group of Ugandan entrepreneurship students with an interest in aquaculture visited regionally relevant sites in their own country with Dr. James Webb. Students had an opportunity to visit fisheries landing sites and talk to fisherman whose lives have changed on account of depleted wild stocks. They also visited farms from smallholder to commercial size, the National Aquaculture Center at Kajansi, Uganda’s only aquarium retail shop, a fish processing and export center, and the Bujugali dam site.

NRC597SA is a senior level course exploring aquaculture's recent rise, successes and failures within the sector, and what is and can be done to ensure fish production becomes a sustainable part of 21st century food production. The course is geared towards students in fisheries, environmental, policy, and agricultural disciplines desiring an overarching perspective on global aquaculture development.
