  • JOB OPPORTUNITIES

    JOB OPPORTUNITIES

    Career opportunities in mariculture are diverse and primarily include jobs that are directly related to food production such as farming, maintenance, feeding, catching, transport and similar but also include jobs in fish hatcheries and farms management. Smaller production facilities in mariculture are mostly operated by one expert who is responsible for the entire production process as well as for running the company and its financial operations.

    Experiences throughout the world show that experts who have graduated from a mariculture programme get jobs in ancillary activities that provide services to mariculture production, such as procurement of equipment and food, sales of fish and shellfish for consumption as well as in consulting jobs at the entrepreneurial and state level.

    Upon graduating from the graduate programme in Mariculture, students will be able to independently work in the jobs mentioned above as well work on introducing new species of marine organisms in the commercial aquaculture production.

  • WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

    WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

    The University of Dubrovnik has chemical, biological and biotechnological laboratories at its disposal as well as experimental research fish and shellfish hatcheries, breeding parks, vessels and a suitable facility for practical student work in the Bistrina cove (part of the Bay of Mali Ston). Also, the University owns the school research ship ‘Naše more’ (‘Our Sea’), which is used to organize field trips for students so that they become acquainted with research methods at sea.
    From the very beginning of their study, students are included in scientific research projects together with their teachers, they participate in projects, scientific conferences and publish papers with the results of their research both domestic and international journals.
