A 10-day course that focused on sustainable aquaculture and company management mechanisms. This was conducted in collaboration with Eduardo Mondlane University, Mozambique, Holar University College, Iceland, National Institute for Aquaculture Development (INAQUA), Mozambique, and Reykjavík University, Iceland.

Description

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in Mozambique to develop small scale aquaculture. This course was developed in collaboration with INAQUA and Eduardo Mondlane University (EMU). The primary objective of the course was to provide support for aquaculture education in Mozambique, specifically the MSc program in EMU.

The course material was prepared in cooperation with teachers at EMU and INAQUA. Meetings were held both in Iceland and Mozambique to prepare the course lectures.

The course was divided into four modules:

Module I: Planning, designing, and constructing a successful small scale commercial fish farm

Module II: Best management practices of fish farms

Module III: Farm Economics and Business Plans

Module IV: Final project – Project - Writing an application to INAQUA.
