Activities Marine Science and Fisheries is the new name of the former department of Fisheries Science and Technology. This evolution reflects changes that are taking place in the world of applied marine sciences. Fisheries is not longer the science of catching fish: it is integrated with many other field of studies of the marine environment such as ecology, aquaculture, coastal zone management and the marine conservation.
Because of its extensive coastline, marine ecosystems are an important part of the development of the Sultanate. In the future, fisheries but also aquaculture, marine tourism and nature conservation will play increased roles in a sustainable growth of the economy. Our students, our staff and our faculties are participating in this exciting avenue..
