Fisheries Management

By studying a fisheries management course at Hadlow College, you can become part of an industry which helps to manage and preserve the waterways, rivers and fisheries of Britain.

Our fisheries management courses take advantage of the exclusive use Hadlow College has with over 20 waterbodies across the South-East as well as our dedicated fishery and stock ponds, a commercial hatchery and operational fish farm. You can learn about surveying and breeding fish, improving habitats and fish biology.

Students will develop and enhance a range of skills including the practical fishery management skills and design, communication, knowledge of fish biology and health, disease identification and treatment, management of aquatic environments and the interactions that occur. Angling knowledge and skills are also developed whilst considering a range of angling skills and opportunities. Knowledge of and practical skills of current aquaculture methods are learnt and developed along with a range of environmental science areas and subjects.

Ultimately, upon finishing your course at Hadlow College, your career in the fisheries industry could range from privately funded research through to habitat conservation, fish farming and fisheries management.
