"Harnessing the Science of Fisheries for Food, Nutrition and Livelihood"

Student Research

Besides, regular production and experiential learning, students' research is the major aspect in the Centres. Separate allotment of Post-Graduate students for the Centres from the lot of students admitted for Aquaculture has been permitted by the Academic Council of the University, by which every year around 5 PG students and 2 PhD students are working for their disseftation in the Centres from 2018-19 academic year. The details of students who have done their thesis and presently doing their dissertation works are given below:

In addition to the students' research the Centres also support faculties research in aquaculture. Proposals have been submitted by the staff members of the DSA for exLernal funding suppot. The following University level research projects are underway in the Centres:

  1. Investigation on the nutritional requirements of Spiny Loach, Lepidocephalus thermalis (at Thanjavur & Parakkai)
  2. Investigation on the production parameters in different farming systems for Pearl Spot, Etropl us suratensis (at Bhavanisagar)

Research articles published in Journals (NAAS>6) by the faculty staff members of DSA during 2021 - 22
