New Master of Science course ‘Aquaculture and Aquariology’, Warmia & Mazury University in Olsztyn (Poland), start October 2007 

The New Master of Science in Aquaculture and Aquariology is a 1.5 - year programme at university level covering the most important aspects of these fields. For students following the regular 5-year study programme, Aquaculture and Aquariology is the secondary-level education in fisheries. Therefore those who have not completed the first-level fishery education will be obliged to follow a course in basic fishery. The course called “Basic Fisheries? will cover about 60% of the basic programme and will continue for 3 semesters (for programme details, as well as credit and ECTS points see web side: www.uwm.edu.pl/wosir/en.

The specialization course Aquaculture and Aquariology includes a practical training and thesis research projects. For the optional course (free choice), the student can select any course which is being provided at the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Fisheries. There is a wide possibility for each individual student to tailor the study programme to his or her own personal preference. The relative large contribution of optional courses usually results in a very multidisciplinary composition of the student course programme. The strong collaborative overseas research and training links, a singular feature of the Faculty, allows access to pond and other aquaculture facilities for field experimental work and on-farm trials.

Admission
The Programme is open to the holders of undergraduate degree (Bachelor’s degree) and graduate degree (Master’s degree) in fisheries, aquaculture, animal husbandry, ichthyology, biology, agronomy, veterinary medicine, or any related area from recognised Colleges and Universities.

SEACASE project: Project studies environmentally-friendly aquaculture in Southern Europe 

Researchers of five European Countries (Portugal, Spain, France, Italy and Greece), cooperate in an innovating project – SEACASE (Sustainable Extensive and Semi-intensive Coastal Aquaculture in Southern Europe) –, financed by the European Commission, which intends to evaluate sustainability of extensive and semi-intensive coastal aquaculture.

The SEACASE project is coordinated by researchers of the Centre of Marine Sciences of Algarve (CCMAR – Portugal). It will be completed by the end of 2009, and will study a wide range of extensive and semi-intensive aquaculture systems. The goal of the SEACASE project (www.seacase.org) is to develop effective tools for improved competitiveness and increased productivity, thus conducting to higher profitability and sustainability of extensive and semi-intensive aquaculture production. By promoting this type of aquaculture, the project aims to manage coastal areas of particular ecological interest, promoting sustainable production, employment and, in the long term, ecotourism and environmental education.

FEUFAR Project: Project on the Future of European Fisheries and Aquaculture Research 

The goal of the FEUFAR project is to define the research required in the medium term (10 years), to enable exploitation and farming of aquatic resources in the context of key challenges and risks for meeting sustainability requirements. The main output of this exercise will be a publication outlining the key challenges, strategic options and research needs concerning fisheries and aquaculture in both European waters and waters in which European fleets are operating under European agreements. The project will contribute to the implementation of a future Maritime Policy and to further strengthen the European Marine Research Area through better anticipation of research needs in the field of fisheries and aquaculture.
 
FEUFAR will seek the opinions of relevant stakeholders and it will consider the possible implications of long-term or sudden climate change, new technologies, changes in societal values and organizational structures, globalized markets for fish and other marine products, food-security, and changes in management practices or fishing techniques.
