This unit of study will investigate the technology used to grow fish, with a focus on Salmon. The health and nutritional benefits of eating fish are reported widely in the scientific literature. To meet increasing demands of human consumption, fish are grown in managed environments. Salmon farming or ‘ranching’ will be used as a context to investigate how they are best suited to be grown in the Tasmanian environment, to produce a quality product for consumption. This unit will provide students with the opportunity to investigate an industry challenge and use design and technology to produce an innovative solution. Design will form major part of this learning experience.
