About NR 195 Z2

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the ideas and principles behind land-based aquaculture, including Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) and Recirculating Aquaponic Systems (RApS). RAS and RApS are new approaches to food systems that use less area to grow more. We will explore their advantages and disadvantages and compare and contrast land-based systems with traditional agriculture and mariculture growing systems where appropriate. Bringing one of these food systems online is tantamount to building a self-contained ecosystem, a support system that requires knowledgeable and careful management to keep all the parts running synchronously. The course will include modules on sustainable food production systems, RAS architecture, RApS architecture and history of RAS and RApS use in agriculture. The course goal is to teach potential operators and employees about the context, advantages and challenges of land-based aquaculture. Students should walk away with a knowledge of the opportunities and problems associated with alternative agriculture systems.
