The Masters in Aquatic Veterinary Studies at Stirling University is located at the Institute of Aquaculture, which is one of the top institutions in its field.
This postgraduate degree provides you with training in the wide range of disciplines and skills you need for the investigation, prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases. You’ll develop an understanding of the biology, husbandry and environment of farmed aquatic species, as well as specialist expertise in aquatic animal diseases.
Food from aquatic systems is essential for much of the world’s population. However, with wild catches of seafood declining in many places, aquaculture is playing an increasing role as an alternative source of high-quality, nutritious food – and as an employer. Controlling disease is important to the ongoing success of this industry.
The Institute of Aquaculture has over 40 years of experience in investigating and controlling fish and shrimp diseases worldwide. This experience will be used to improve your problem-solving skills and ultimately equip you to make a real contribution to the sustainability of aquaculture.
The course is suitable for those students who already practice Veterinary Science. However, it can also be seen as preparation for anyone who plans to undertake a PhD in the area of aquatic animal health or disease.
