Marine Bioresource Science
The primary aim of the Chair of Marine Bioresource Ecology is to foster individuals with superior laboratory skills and an advanced knowledge of basic and applied academic fields in marine bioresource ecology. The study and educational areas are the ecology, life history, and population dynamics of key species such as fish, cephalopod, marine mammal and seabird in marine ecosystem. We have research and educational programs on the impact of the environmental changes and fisheries activities to the marine ecosystem, life history of coastal fish, and the response to biotic and abiotic environments. We also researches and provides educations for sustainable use of marine bioresources, focusing on fish and cetacean population dynamics, stock assessment and management, evolution and plasticity of aquatic organisms.
