Aquaculture is rapidly developing throughout the world. Although progress has been slow in some areas, aquaculture is now an apparent part of modern food production systems. To support the growth of aquaculture in underserved areas the Fish-for-All (FFA) concept was developed. The concept relies on an innovative and appropriate recirculating aquaculture system, coupled with plans for deployment, dissemination, and technology transfer.

Description coming soon.

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.

Description coming soon.
