PET Fishery

PET Fishery is the Tutorial Education Program (PET) of Fishing Engineering of the Socioenvironmental and Water Resources Institute (ISARH) of the Federal Rural University of Amazonia (UFRA), developed by a group of students, with tutoring by a teacher, organized from undergraduate level training in the country’s higher education institutions, guided by the principle of inseparability between teaching, research and extension and tutorial education.

The Fishing Engineer applies knowledge and technologies in the localization, capture, cultivation, processing and conservation of aquatic species such as fish, crustaceans and seafood. It is he who plans, coordinates and implements integrated activities for the exploitation of natural resources, sustainable cultivation and exploitation, and the industrialization and commercialization of fish. It performs the analysis and management of the water and soil quality of the cultivation units, as well as studies of technical-economic feasibility. The main areas of activity are:

Aquatic ecology
Fishing extension
Production of aquatic species
Technology of fishery production
Fish benefit, processing and transformation
