Aquaculture and Fisheries Technology

The Major

The aquaculture program at the University of Rhode Island, begun in 1969 and administered by the Department of Fisheries, Animal and Veterinary Sciences (FAVS), is one of the oldest aquaculture programs in the northeastern United States. Students in our aquaculture program have come from throughout the United States and from many foreign countries. Faculty in the department have research interests in culture of salmonids, culture of marine finfish and marine finfish larviculture, DNA vaccines, culture of bivalve mollusks, recirculation aquaculture systems, development of new aquaculture species, and environmental impacts of aquaculture among many others.

Official URI course information may be found in the printed Bulletin of the University of Rhode Island. An on-line version of the Bulletin and an HTML list of courses taught by the Department of Biological Sciences is available. Undergraduate programs typically incorporate courses at the 100-, 200-, 300-, and 400-levels. The courses for Biology students are listed below. You can access the URI catalogue at
