This course will introduce by lecture and in an interactive, group study fashion, the transdisciplinary study of the world’s aquaculture ecosystems. We will study the principles of ecology (natural and social ecology) as they relate to the ecological designs, structures, functions and social ecologies of integrated aquaculture farming ecosystems. We will use examples from the world’s major aquaculture species (shrimp, tilapia) and discuss their history (and “her-story”), current status, and futures. This course will include about 10 hours of interactive classroom work by students in group studies.
