Aquaculture in the Classroom

The videos below were submitted by students from Ballenas Secondary School in Parksville and Stelly’s Secondary School in Saanichton. The students were invited to the Aquaculture Canada 2015 Conference “Blue Revolution 2.0” where professionals explored the following dilemma; As consumption of farmed seafood surpasses that of captured wild seafood for the first time in global history, we look to feed a population that is estimated to exceed 9 billion people by 2050.

The conference took place at Vancouver Island University (VIU) Aquaculture Research Facility and The Vancouver Island Conference Centre. Students learned about recent advances in aquaculture science and practice and the significance of the Aquaculture Industry in British Columbia, and across Canada. They toured the Vancouver Island University Aquaculture Research Facility and learned about Finfish, Shellfish, Sturgeon, and Hydroponics led by instructors, fish farm technicians, managers and other professionals. They also participated in a careers in aquaculture session; connecting with researchers, industry leaders, and hands on fish farm specialists.  They were then asked to submit a video showing their learning. The videos below were the Top 3 submitted.
