Study at the Faculty of Agriculture in Truro


Located one hour from Halifax in Truro, NS, Dalhousie's Agricultural Campus is a great place to study, work and live.

Top 5 reasons to study Aquaculture at Dalhousie:

  1. The Aquaculture Centre: An 8,100 square-foot facility, located at the Dalhousie Agricultural Campus in Truro, includes freshwater and seawater sources, wet and dry labs and high-performance technology.
  2. Underwater diversity: You'll work with a variety of fish, shellfish and plant species, from salmon to algae.
  3. Get your hands wet: Whether raising fish from egg to adult or managing aquatic ecosystems, you'll learn by doing.
  4. Graduate study options: Students can pursue a Master's (MSc) in Aquaculture, offered in partnership with the National Research Council, after completing an undergraduate degree.
  5. An expanding field: With seafood increasingly coming from farms, the skills you'll acquire in fish, shellfish and aquatic plant production and maintenance are increasingly marketable.
