Aquaculture accounts for more than half of the fish supply for human consumption whilst angling is the biggest single leisure industry in the UK with a value in excess of £4 billion annually. With the focus on a sustainable secure food supply for the future and a population with more leisure time available, enhanced knowledge and training are required by the industry in these two areas. Sports fisheries offer considerable subject overlap with aquaculture in terms of technical application, environmental impact, containment and predation, legislation and sustainability.

The Salmonid Rearing and Trial Centre (SRTC) and the National Aquatics Training Centre (NATC) provide students with immediate access to the husbandry and rearing of many global aquaculture species together with extensive research facilities. In addition, the CollegeÕs close links with the UK aquaculture industry offer applied research opportunities. The onsite experiences for the sports fishery element of the MSc are supported by the College fishery and the stock of sports fish available in the NATC as well as numerous field site visits to local aquaculture and sports fishery venues. The CollegeÕs close proximity to many important and exclusive sports fisheries in Southern England will also provide students with unique learning experiences in the sustainable management of both aquaculture and sports fisheries. The teaching team at Sparsholt have a strong background in aquaculture and sports fisheries with specialisms in global aquaculture, fishery management and environmental biology.
