Fisheries Biology and Aquaculture

Fisheries science explores the interaction among fish populations, the environment, and humans. Fisheries researchers confront issues ranging from managing harvest of fish populations to developing novel approaches for culturing finfish and shellfish. Courses and research in Zoology include fisheries ecology and management, ichthyology, fish genetics, fish health and nutrition, aquaculture, fish physiology, aquatic toxicology, and population genetics.
