Fisheries Management

Subject Area Overview

By studying a fisheries management course at Hadlow College, you can become part of an industry which helps to manage and preserve the waterways, rivers and fisheries of Britain.

Our fisheries management courses take advantage of the exclusive use Hadlow College has with over 20 waterbodies across the South-East as well as our dedicated fishery and stock ponds, a commercial hatchery and operational fish farm.  You can learn about surveying and breeding fish, improving habitats and fish biology.

Ultimately, upon finishing your course at Hadlow College, your career in the fisheries industry could range from privately funded research through to habitat conservation, fish farming and fisheries management.
 

I knew that I wanted to do something different once I’d finished my GCSEs – I didn’t necessarily want to be sat in a classroom all day studying subjects that I had no real interest in – so, when I saw this qualification and realised that I could potentially turn my hobby into a worthwhile career, I jumped at the chance. As soon as I came to the College for my interview I felt comfortable and knew that it was the right place for me. I was impressed with the facilities and the knowledge that the tutors had, as well as the other aspects to the College such as the enrichment programme. These are really good to get involved with. The one element that stands out for me are the practical lessons. It’s great that we’re not always inside the classroom but instead outside involved with practical hatchery work or taking part in fish surveys. Through these, as well as the study tour, you really learn about the industry and see how it works.
