In our course, we make researches about marine life on a range of scales, from cellular and individual to biotic communities and ecosystems. Our research fields cover all marine environments, including fresh water, but with an emphasis on the oceans. The subject of research consists of different biology with plankton, algae, crustaceans, shellfish, finfish, and marine mammals. We conduct research and education on understanding the workings of each of these life forms at the genetic, cellular, individual, and community levels, as well as on methods for preserving ecosystems and biodiversity and on the sustainable use of marine life. We also aim to enrich human life through the appropriate management of marine life as resources, effective aquaculture methods, and ICTs for fisheries.
