Course Name : Physiology of Finfish and Shellfish

Code(Credit) : FSRM01(2-1-0)

Course Objectives

  1. To define what is physiology

  2. To study physiological functions

  3. To understand the importance of finfish and shellfish physiology in fishery biology

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course students should:

    1. have an enhanced knowledge and appreciation of finfish and shellfish physiology

    2. understand the functions of important physiological systems including the respiratory,circulatory, excretory, reproductive and metabolic systems

    3. understand how these separate systems interact to yield integrated physiological responses to stress
