City University of Hong Kong’s School of Veterinary Medicine, in collaboration with the University of Stirling (Scotland), will be introducing an MSc in AQUATIC PRODUCTION AND VETERINARY HEALTH in September 2017.
The demand for aquatic food worldwide is increasing significantly and at the same time there is pressure for more efficient production and safe food while taking into account the environmental and sustainability issues throughout the entire aquatic food value chain. This programme responds to the large global prevalence of aquatic products and the rising demand in the aquatic industry in Mainland China and Hong Kong. Most aquatic-related master’s programmes in the region approach aquatic production from marine biology, ecology, or environmental perspectives. This MSc programme is differentiated by its focus on aquatic production with a veterinary element, and will attract industry professionals who are seeking to deepen their knowledge in order to advance their careers moving on from production roles into specialist roles.
