World Class Aquaculture Education
UWSP is leading the nation in aquaculture and aquaponic education opportunities through Wisconsin's first aquaculture/Fish Culture Minor and hands-on internships at the state-of-the-art UWSP NADF.
Aquaculture/Fish Culture Minor-Biology
The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is the first accredited university in Wisconsin to offer an aquaculture minor..
Aquaculture is the discipline that studies the culture of finfish, methods of production, environmental and ecological manipulation and assessment, selective breeding, nutrition, diseases, processing, marketing and operation of culture facilities. The importance of aquaculture has increased as natural stocks of fish have declined and human consumption has continued to rise.
Students who are interested in careers or continuing education in aquaculture, fish or aquatic biology, fisheries, veterinary science, aquatic captive wildlife, water resources, or work at a private, state, or federal hatcheries & aquariums should consider enrolling.
