Laboraty of Marine Environmental Science

(last up date 2018/05/10)

Study topics



Back to Japanese version.

  • Goals of our lab is educate a student who can contribute the fisheries and society by researching on marine environmental science.
    Ambitious student who is interested in marine environmental science is welcome to our lab.

  • Main topics are
    -Monitoring of chemical pollution in aquatic environment,
    -Evaluation of single and mixture effects of chemicals on aquatic organisms,
    -Function analysis of xenobiotic binding protein in blood of fish,
    -Development of removal technology of contaminated sediment,
    -Clarification of developmental mechanism of red tide, and physiological and ecological study of red tide organisms
