Program Details

The University of Florida’s Master of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences is conveniently delivered through an entirely online format. This program is offered through the university’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences and administered through the School of Forest Resources and Conservation. The Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences program is designed for working professionals who are currently working in, or interested in working in, the areas of environmental science, fisheries, aquatic sciences, and natural resource fields, and wish to continue their educations and advance their careers.

The School of Forest Resources and Conservation understands that aquatic resources comprise a large share of the earth’s biodiversity and provide crucial ecosystem functions such as the production of food, maintenance of water and environmental quality, and provision of recreational activities. However, these resources are facing unprecedented threats from overfishing, habit loss degradation, and global environmental change. As a response to these threats, the Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences program is conducting research, training, and extension for sustainable development and the conservation of biological resources in Florida, nationally, and globally. Some of the required courses that students will take through this program span the topics of Diseases of Warmwater Fishes, Applied Fisheries Statistics, Scientific Thinking in Ecology, Fish Population Dynamics, and Marine Ecological Processes.
