Vancouver Island University’s close proximity and relationship with Fisheries and Oceans Canada have developed the Fisheries and Aquaculture Technology program into one of the best of its kind.

Students receive expert instruction from leading aquaculture specialists, fishery officers and marine biologists, and take part in a hands-on practicum experience, spending more than a quarter of their training out in the field.
