Due to the COVID pandemic, the call for the Master's program in Tropical Aquaculture has been postponed to 2023. An announcement for the application will be launched early next year.

 

DEPARTMENT OF APPLIED HYDROBIOLOGY

Background

The Department of Applied Hydrobiology is functioning as a fundamental unit in the College of Aquaculture and Fisheries. The mission of the Department is to conduct teaching, research and training on fundamental disciplines including water sciences, aquatic ecology, fish physiology, beneficial bacteria, live food, etc. in aquaculture.

Staff

The Department comprises 6 lecturers and 10 researchers; of which, there are 2 Professors, 1 Associate Professor, 5 Ph.D., 5 MSc. (2 doctoral students), and 3 BSc. (2 master students).

Education

The Department is responsible for offering courses on Water quality management, Environmental impact assessment in aquaculture, Fish physiology, Aquatic plants and animals, Anatomy and taxonomy of aquatic invertebrates and vertebrates, Aquatic ecosystems, Aquatic ecology, Live food production… for undergraduate and graduate students in different majors including Aquaculture, Aquatic Pathology, and Fisheries Management…

Research

Research is a compulsorily important task of the Department. Primary research fields are focused on water quality assessment and management, assessment of environmental impact from aquaculture, fish physiology, aquatic resources, population dynamics, bio-monitoring, biodiversity of aquatic organisms, live food production technologies, beneficial bacteria in aquaculture, natural bioactive compounds, etc.

Training and technology transfer

Training courses are occasionally organized as demand. The following courses are often offered to local staff, aquaculturists, or farmers in the Mekong Delta:

Water quality analysis and management in shrimp/fishponds

Algae and aquatic invertebrate identification

Physiology of aquatic animals

Isolation and identification of beneficial bacteria for aquaculture uses

Live food culture techniques (Algae, Rotifers, Artemia, Waterflea/Moina, Copepods)

Facilities

The Department possesses several laboratories and wet-labs for its teaching, research, and training. Advanced Aquatic Environment Lab is equipped with many modern equipment that can analyze more than 30 water and sediment parameters. Aquatic Biodiversity Lab supports to analyze qualitatively and quantitatively phytoplankton, zooplankton, and zoobenthos. In addition, other advanced labs such as Fish Physiology Lab, Marine Bioresources Lab, Live Food Lab, Aquaculture Probiotics Lab can be used for all research and teaching activities in the Department. Especially, a wet-lab provides facilities to develop live food culture models.
