Apply now for the International Master Program in Fish Biology, Fisheries and Aquaculture!

The program educates fish experts – for science, practice and nature conservation. Graduates get the skills to work in pioneering jobs at the interface of the aquatic sciences, sustainable ecosystem management and food production. The course of study is exceptional in covering the three domains: Fish Biology and Evolution of Fishes, Fisheries Management and Conservation as well as Aquaculture.

In a joint initiative, the Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries (IGB), the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin (HU Berlin) and the Institute of Inland Fisheries in Potsdam Sacrow (IfB) coordinate the International Master Program in Fish Biology, Fisheries and Aquaculture.

Professor Jens Krause, head of the IGB department Biology and Ecology of Fishes, is leading the master program: "This program considers current issues of societal relevance. The management of our freshwaters is one of the future global challenges. It is essential to develop solutions to environmental and fisheries exploitation-induced problems in lakes and rivers and to deal with the complexity of social-ecological interactions. Aquaculture is the fastest growing sector in food production. There will be a need for specialists with a broad range of key qualifications. We have the ambitious goal to educate fish experts with a strong knowledge in science, practice and nature conservation."
