The design and construction of built facilities for aquaculture must address multiple challenges: understanding the biological aspects in relation with the local climate and geography, environmental aspects, salinity effects, tidal effects, access to the facilities, resisting weather impact, quality of water for adequate living conditions for aquaculture, the storage of aquaculture products, etc. Therefore, the course addresses at a general level elementary engineering and services aspects, keeping water freshness and aeration, measures to control water pollution, ensuring adequate conditions of air humidity, temperature and velocity during preservation by chilling, packaging of frozen products, increasing aquaculture products storage life.
