Aquaculture and Maritime
Motueka High School
Hannah enrolled in the Aquaculture & Maritime programme as her first step to achieving her long term goal of becoming a marine scientist. Hannah has always had an interest in environmental and marine issues and plans to study in this area once she leaves school. At Trades she is enjoying the opportunity to gain practical hands-on skills.
“I really love that we get to learn about salmon farming in a practical way that we wouldn’t have the opportunity to do at school. Coming from a little town like Motueka, it’s great to be here at NMIT – it’s very high-tech with all the laboratory facilities.”
Hannah says that the tutors are really friendly and approachable. They are also very knowledgeable about the industry and career opportunities within the Aquaculture and Maritime area. Hannah believes that what she is learning at Trades now will help her make a decision about future employment and study.
