Why study

Aquaculture is a strategic sector of economic development for Galicia that requires a large number of human resources with a high training level. There are organizations such as the Galician Institute for Aquaculture Training (IGAFA) that feed the labour market with excellent technicians in aquaculture. However, the industry and the administration require graduates who can be incorporated in companies and public institutions (technological centres, research centres, universities, etc.) to carry out research, development and innovation tasks in Aquaculture.
