Activities The Department of Oceanography and Fisheries is Ghana’s foremost university institution primarily concerned with oceanographic and fisheries research and training. The Department runs a B.Sc. combined-major in Oceanography and Fisheries which is designed to provide students with the requisite knowledge and skills that will enable them to avail themselves of employment opportunities in the fishing industry, conservation, education, environmental protection, food and agriculture or embark on individual initiatives. There is also the opportunity for them to further their studies at the graduate level where the Department runs both M.Phil and Ph.D programmes in Fisheries and Oceanography. The Oceanography programmes specialize in Biological, Physical and Chemical Oceanography and Marine Geoscience. The Department also runs short courses for stakeholders in fisheries, aquaculture, coastal resource management, environmental health among others.
