What's Aquaculture like?

Aquaculture involves the production of fin fish and shellfish such as tuna, halibut, mussels and scallops. Scotland has a thriving aquaculture industry, with many facilities located on the west coast. The sector is growing at a steady rate and there’s a need for people with specialist knowledge. Learn how to survive at sea and develop skills that could help you work on a ship.  

The apprenticeship will teach you different skills, such as the safe handling of different species of fish and how to manage seafood in an ethical way.
