India holds seventh position in the export of fish in the world and is the fourth largest producer of fish in the world. The living of over 500 million people in developing countries depends on fisheries and aquaculture (as in sarvgyan.com). TNU’s Bachelor of Fisheries Science course involves advanced knowledge and skill in catching, processing, marketing and conservation of fish, molluscs (including oyster’s abalone, mussels and scallops) and crustaceans (shrimps, prawns, freshwater and marine crayfish) and aquatic plants such as sea weeds. This programme will include curriculum designed by academic experts, research and hands-on experiential training to provide students with real-life work experience.
