Marine Biology

The importance of Marine Biology to the region having a vast seacoast extending over 169 kms has been duly taken note of. There are 93 coastal fishermen habitations, having a population of 82,500. There is an inland fish production of 45805 metric tons with marine fish production of 45363 metric tons. Thus fishing sector of the district contributes a major share to national income. Other marine resources need to be taken into account in a comprehensive study of the oceanographic features of the district and M.Sc. in Marine Biology will study the marine living resources of the region and also launch on biodiversity and ecology studies. Hence this course has been started with accent on the study understanding of ocean wealth. The course, like all other courses offered by Vikrama Simhapuri University, has a Project Work component carrying 100 marks through which marketable practical training on a significant aspect of Marine Biology is imparted to the student
