Aquatic Field Science


Studies on the reproductive biology of marine invertebrates, the comparative endocrinology of marine invertebrates, the molecular mechanism of coral bleaching by using a model sea anemone, growth and metabolic scaling in fish, conservation and enhancement of fish ecosystem in fluvial and littoral fields, the ecology of freshwater fishes, and conservation biology of freshwater and brackish water organisms

Research Theme

  1. Endocrinology of marine invertebrates (Echinoidea, Holothuroidea, Crustacea, Mollusca)
  2. Ecology and stock enhancement of estuarial and coastal fishes and invertebrates (Early life history, Age, Growth, Migration, Reproduction, Spawning behavior, Engraulidae, Gobiidae, Cottidae,Tetraodontidae)
  3. Conservation of aquatic field (Habitat, Diversity)
  4. Breeding techniques for marine fishes (Maturation and spawning, Larvae and juveniles, Initial food, Rearing conditions)
  5. Growth and metabolic scaling of fish (Oxygen consumption, Body size, Swimming,Cannibalism)
