I’m not sure anyones ever tried to do an aquaculture project with sharks before, and it would be quite interesting to see, but also very difficult. One problem i can see is im not entirely sure if your professors/FFA would consider this aquaculture in the first place: aquaculture generally refers to a larger scale of production and raising 3-6 sharks is more like something an aquarist might do.

That’s not to say it can’t be done though, however it would probably be very expensive: depending on wether you can actually get eggs for these sharks in the first place, getting them to hatch isn’t the easiest thing in the world, and the gestation period is between 9-12 months. You’d also need quite a large tank to raise any type of shark and in some cases they will only eat live feed, which is also very expensive to keep up.

If you’re looking to do an aquaculture project raising crustaceans such as crabs or shrimps is very cheap (however time consuming, it could take up to two years to have a fully grown culture). Zooplankton/algae work very well as well & i know that salmon larvae would probably work quite well , and isn’t all too expensive.

I hope that helped, if you have more details about what you actually want to do i’d be glad to help out.
