AquaVitae develops different training activities that provide the knowledge needed to bring the low-trophic aquaculture production to a wider audience ensuring sustainable food production and mitigation of the climate crisis. Among these activities, we can pinpoint the student exchange, our monthly webinars and, of course, the massive open online course MOOC on low-trophic aquaculture that you will enjoy shortly.
However, a course with these features (flexibility, international reach and state-of-the-art knowledge) requires an enormous preparation of the MOOC itself and of those in charge of each module. Nyiko Mabasa will show us what means being behind the scenes of such an event.
Dr. Nyiko Mabasa graduated with her PhD at the Department of Ichthyology and Fisheries Science, at Rhodes University. She is currently doing her post-doc at the Department and also working on an AquaVitae project. Her interests are in aquaculture, agriculture and the reclamation of industrial wastewater.
