Academics and Publications



At Salem State University the aquaculture concentration within the biology department manifests its ecological heritage. Students explore energy flow and allocation in aquatic systems. Techniques to repackage energy into organisms considered desirable by humankind are examined analytically. The curriculum affords students the opportunity to learn about aquaculture and to apply newly acquired skills in real-life situations. Courses offered at the Cat Cove Marine Laboratory include: introduction to aquaculture, aquaculture methods, advanced aquaculture, fish biology, and aquaculture internships.
