DTU produces graduates for the sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture

February 21, 2024

“I chose the programme both out of interest and because it’s a good opportunity to get close to the fishing industry in Hirtshals. As a food source, fish and shellfish are more sustainable than conventional agriculture in terms of CO2 emissions. “I hope to be able to work with the sustainable development of fisheries, for example in relation to the production or development of tools and fishing methods.”What’s it like to study in Hirtshals? “I appreciate a study environment with few students. She is an MSc student on the Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture programme.

Why did you choose this master’s programme?

“I chose the programme both out of interest and because it’s a good opportunity to get close to the fishing industry in Hirtshals. It makes sense to educate yourself in a place where the industry is right next door.”

“If we want to continue fishing, it’s important to develop and work with sustainability and sustainable tools. As a food source, fish and shellfish are more sustainable than conventional agriculture in terms of CO2 emissions. So if agriculture were to replace food source, it will have environmental consequences.”

How can you use your education?

“I hope to be able to work with the sustainable development of fisheries, for example in relation to the production or development of tools and fishing methods.”

What’s it like to study in Hirtshals?

“I appreciate a study environment with few students. It gives a good sense of community in a relaxed atmosphere. In addition, I’m working at the North Sea Oceanarium, which is also affiliated with the North Sea Science Park—just like DTU. The science park environment is really cool, and there are many student job opportunities.”

Have you considered living in Hirtshals after graduating?

“It depends on the job opportunities. Hirtshals is a lovely place with a good local environment close to nature and water, so it could be an option.”
