The paper presents the activities and developments in Master level education over the last 18 years in European aquaculture specifically with regard to the ERASMUS Thematic network AQUA-TNET and its partners. The Master group’s progress is described alongside its response to the ever-evolving challenges posed by the Bologna reforms. The differences and variations in the way that Master degrees were conducted throughout Europe are clearly documented, a situation that led to substantial changes in Master degrees within a relatively short time period. The dedication of the AQUA-TNET network enabled its partners to meet European challenges within aquaculture education through its cooperative activities.
