The main role of the Department of Aquatic Biosciences is to support research and education on basic and applied biology of aquatic organisms, with the ultimate goal of fostering the supply and conservation of aquatic resources. For this purpose, it is fundamental to understand the life-history of many aquatic organisms and their interactions with the surrounding environment. Based on this knowledge, methods to promote the reproduction and growth of aquatic animals and plants as well as for the wise use of natural living resources can be developed. Sea-farming
and intensive aquaculture are two methods to artificially raise resources and implement their programmed harvesting.

Curriculum Planning
To meet with the continuing development of the aquatic biotechnology and aquaculture industry, the Department of Aquatic Biosciences is conducting various academic research and practical skills training under the principle of aquatic ecology conservation. Additionally, one of our missions is to cultivate our students into becoming research personnel in life sciences and related industries. We have collaborated with professional research teams and fisheries research institutes to enforce academia industry collaboration and extension service. Therefore, we promote aquatic sciences and biotechnology in Changhua, Yunlin, Chiayi and Tainan areas.
