Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences


 Fisheries & Aquatic Science

Chapman Lake

Develop and disseminate knowledge about aquatic animals and their habitats, including aquaculture; interactions between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems; and fates and effects of pollutants; and appropriate management practices for the protection and use of aquatic ecosystems.


Aquatic animal nutrition, physiology, biochemistry
Population genetics, molecular ecology and evolution
