Advances in the hydraulics and software systems were made on RASTA (Recirculating Aquaculture System Technology Assessment), an innovative platform for assessing the efficiency of aquaculture system operation known as RASTA (Recirculating Aquaculture System Technology Assessment). RASTA combines the results of a questionnaire, site survey, and monitoring platform assessment to provide a comprehensive evaluation of the ecological and economic sustainability of aquaculture production.
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.

Media plays an enormous role in today’s society. It has played an immense role in shaping people’s perceptions of aquaculture.

A plethora of high quality instructional content already exists in the form of technical manuals produced by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.
