Department of Coastal and Environmental Science

Department of Coastal and Environmental Science was established in 2020 to acquire superior knowledge of our aquatic environment. Advanced knowledge of fisheries and aquaculture and skill in various fields of aquatic ecosystem are required for aquaculture, food quality, weed culture, seashells/ pearl industry, oil/ gas operators and naval warfare etc. The department undertakes research in fisheries and aquaculture including ecological, biological, biochemical, chemical, geological studies on aquatic life of area. Aquatic resources of Pakistan are still untapped, which must be given due attention to contribute greater share in economic growth of Pakistan. Without requisite expertise in various fields of fisheries and aquaculture it is not possible to exploit the immense wealth of our productive, rich coastal zones and continental shelves. The Institute’s mission is to conduct avant-garde research, train young scientists, provide expertise to governmental or nongovernmental agencies and industries to accomplish optimal protection for and exploitation of our fisheries and aquaculture and to promote fresh knowledge to constitute public policy.
