Careers in Aquaculture

We revisit the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Pacific Aquaculture and Coastal Resources Center. The center provides hand-on experience for students in aquaculture and aquaponics. The center is more than just a place of learning; it grows ornamental fish, food fish, shellfish, and limu for the community and other aquaculture facilities. We take a look at the hatchery, where they produce juvenile fish and oysters. And, we learn about microalgae being grown to feed the fish and shellfish. The center is an important training facility for students and has helped to grow aquaculture production across the state—including the use of the Native Hawaiian Oyster, which is grown for food as well as to help clean water in places like Hilo Bay, Pearl Harbor, and the Ala Wai.
