    Aquaculture is itself a multi- and inter-disciplinary science involving a number of scientific fields. Continued expansion of aquaculture production (presently accounting for over 50% of seafood production globally) is recognised as the only way to meet increasing demand for seafood. As a leading producer and exporter of seafood, Norway has led the way in aquaculture development. University of Nordland, is a key national centre of competence and main player in aquaculture education in Norway. With close links to the local, national and international aquaculture industry and reputation for producing high quality and relevant science, University of Nordland and the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture are the logical choice for an advanced degree in this area.
