The department conducts teaching and cutting-edge research to solve basic questions in fisheries and marine sciences, and applies basic biological and molecular biology knowledge to support sustainable production of fish and other aquatic lives, and conservation of inland aquatic and marine ecosystem. The department offers theoretical and practical courses basically on different fundamental subjects with some applied ones such as aquatic zoology, systematics, ichthyology, aquatic biodiversity, marine biology, fish physiology, principal of genetics, evolutionary biology, molecular biotechnology and hatchery management along with some elective courses in undergraduate (BSc) and graduate (MS) programs. The department is well equipped for state-of-art research in fisheries and marine biology, and in molecular genetics including DNA sequencing and genotyping, molecular cloning, application of molecular markers, gene expression, cryopreservation of germ cells, histology, tissue culture and, breeding and culture biology of aquatic organisms. The mission of the Department is to provide a solid foundation of current knowledge and skills in the fisheries and marine biology to prepare undergraduate and postgraduate students for bright careers and advanced study.
