Background

The Department of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management is made up of three units: aquaculture; hydro-biology; and fisheries. The department is located on the Nyankpala campus of the University for Development Studies. The department seeks to train the needed manpower to ensure that communities in the catchment areas get access to important sources of fish protein. The fishing industry plays an important role in livelihoods by reducing poverty and contributing to national development.

Aims

The department aims to produce graduates with an in‐depth understanding of the underlying principles related to aquaculture, aquatic ecology and fisheries research and extension capabilities. Trainees would be equipped with the skills in aquaculture production systems and engineering as well as fish farming to complement fish production from the ocean.

Vision Statement

To be a leading institution in teaching, research and community service in the areas of fisheries and aquatic resources and to ensure the sustainable management of these resources in Ghana and the world at large.

Mission Statement

To advance and promote knowledge and skills in the fields of aquaculture, aquatic ecology and fisheries for increased and sustainable fish production and utilization, and produce relevant graduates for sustainable renewable natural resources management through teaching, research, outreach/community service and consultancies in response to national, continental and international needs.

Units in the Department

  1. Fisheries: the unit deals with the ecology and biology of freshwater fishes; population dynamics and stock assessment of freshwater fish communities; fish distribution and migration; trophic position, growth and condition of key species; and fisheries resources and fishing communities management
  2. Aquaculture: the focus of the unit is on principles and practices of fish farming; fish seed production; fish nutrition and technology; fish diseases and parasites; engineering; genetics; and water quality assessment.
  3. Aquatic Ecology: the unit studies primary production of freshwater ecosystems (phytoplankton and chlorophyll a); ecology of aquatic organisms (macrobenthic invertebrates and zooplanktons); physico-chemical properties of freshwater ecosystems; impacts of pollution/eutrophication and environmental variability on aquatic resources dynamics; bio-monitoring of aquatic ecosystems; and trophic modelling of freshwater ecosystems.

Employment and Progression Opportunities

Graduates of this department can progress to the post-graduate level especially for MSc/MPhil and PhD programmes.  They can also serve as production managers of private and state owned fish farms. Others can work as academics in secondary schools, agriculture colleges and universities, and research scientists at CSIR-Water Research Institute. The Ministry of Fisheries & Aquaculture Development as well as the Fisheries Commission also offers employment opportunities.
