Department of Fish Biology and Biotechnology has started its journey through the establishment of Faculty of Fisheries in 2012. It has become an important department under the Faculty of Fisheries.  The Vision of this department is to play a social role by meeting the demand of fish protein through the increase of production by sophisticated research and applying modern biotechnological applications. 

The department offers different courses (25 credits) at undergraduate (B. Sc. Fisheries (Hons.) and along with teaching activities, faculties of this department also engaged with research, consultancy and other extracurricular activities. 

The aim of this department is to produce competent fisheries graduates and also develop a center of excellence for education, training and research in the field of fish biology and biotechnology. This department is engaged in generating sustainable breeding technologies for different exotic and indigenous species and establishing proper management technique for revival and conservation of different vulnerable and critically endangered species with applied molecular techniques. This department is located at 1st floor of the new academic buildings of CVASU.


 



Md. Moudud Islam
Assistant Professor and Head
Department of Fish Biology and Biotechnology



Department of Fish Biology and Biotechnology believes that students and faculty have a shared responsibility to obtain knowledge. Faculty should maintain their expertise by ongoing investigation, presentation, and pursuit of scholarly activities. In addition to the pursuit of scholarly information in Fish Biology and Biotechnology, students should develop skills in communication, analysis, and critical thinking relevant to Fish Biology, Biotechnology and other disciplines.

As a Department Head, I would like to lay out the welcome-mat for the pupils to apex their career in the respective strain of life. We want to develop this university as a unique institution so that the graduates produced from it can cope with the challenges of 21st century. Here you can enroll yourself in M.S. and Ph.D.

We cordially invite the students who wish to be admitted in our department for undergraduate and post-graduate program.
