Diving Techniques Training for Aqua-farm Divers
Since the start of our Dive Technical Training, many clients have passed through our door either here in Kitakyushu or up in Yokosuka.
A newer area that has been getting attention, aside from Fire and Police divers, is the Japanese aquaculture industry (aqua-farms).
Aquaculture has been around in Japan well before the 1940′s but became more developed in the 1960 with the establishment of specific fisheries organizations.
Due to the current state of fishing and competition for natural resources, open water fish farming has been expanding; opening a greater need for divers to care for and maintain the systems used for holding the fish stock. With the increase in size and complexity of these farms comes more risk for those involved and that is where NSTC in. Our staff has been working with the Aquaculture industry to help train their divers so that they have a better skill-set when carrying out their duties at the work site.
With NSTC’s Dive training, the trainees have more control over the risks that they face which may include physical or mental stresses from the lack of core-techniques, poor air management, entanglement, dive equipment malfunctions, etc.
We hope that this training expands even further, so that the skill-sets and safety for all involved in aquaculture are able to live a safer and more productive life.
