FISHING AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Students will learn about fishing and it’s impact on the environment and gain the skills which are necessary to create sustainable fisheries, develop fisheries for non-salmonid species and to effectively monitor fish stocks and habitats.
THE FISH FARM
Students will look in to the various legislation requirements relating to the Fisheries Industry and gain an understanding of Rod Licences and The Country Code.
It is important as a fishery owner to gain an understanding of why these rules are in place, how they could affect you personally and why they should be followed and the consequences of breaking these rules.
Students will learn about the various types of predators that can affect the stocks of a fishery or fish farm. It’s important as fishery managers that we understand the possible predators that could affect our stock and the ways in which we can safely and legally protect ourselves.
Students will also learn about the various different internal and external features of a fish species and will also get to watch a live dissection of a fish to better understand the internal organs and the way in which they work.
Seeing the dissection of a real fish was so interesting”
THE WATER CYCLE
Students will also look in to the Water Cycle to gain an understanding of how it works and its affects on fishing. It will also help students to identify when good times are to go fishing in relation to weather conditions. Fish especially carp are greatly affected by the weather and if you can understand why this is it will certainly help you put more fish on the bank.
Students will also look at water quality and its affect on fish stocks. Its important to be able to take accurate water samples and oxygen readings within your fishery so that any forthcoming problems can be prevented before they have any negative impact on fish stocks. Students will learn to take after samples and oxygen readings as well as looking at invertebrate life as an indicator of water quality.
On this course learners will be able to gain knowledge and practical experience of what it is like to work on a fishery and improve employability skills. Using a variety of teaching and learning styles including classroom debates, lecturers, practical learning, written work and home study, learners will leave with a good understanding of what it is like to work on a fishery as well as skills that are transferable across a range of employment.
