Academic, scientific or professional interest: Fishery products are one of the most important animal protein sources in the world. However, while global demand has increased in recent years, the production by extractive fishing remains stable, if not in clear decline. Therefore, aquaculture is the fastest growing food industry worldwide. Spain is one of the largest fish consumers and aquaculture is the alternative to ensure market supply. The incorporation of floating cage systems has placed the Valencian Community among the major participants of the sector nationwide. Thus, aquaculture is one of the emerging sectors in the Community. This Master’s degree offers an advanced training programme to meet these needs and to prepare skilled professionals who can design, manage, control and innovate in the fish farms already installed or recently built. It is also important to train researchers prepared to advance knowledge in the many disciplines involved in the cultivation of aquatic species: nutrition, reproduction, pathology, etc. It could be said that, in addition to working as specialists in any type of business and activity, these studies train future entrepreneurs and researchers.
