Fisheries & Marine Resources Technology Discipline (FMRT) is one of the important disciplines under the Life Science School of Khulna University, which started its journey in 1992, the second year of its establishment of Khulna University. The bachelor of science in fisheries program was started with a view to better utilization and sustainable development of fisheries and marine resources in Bangladesh, which is crisscrossed with numerous and diversified water bodies. The discipline offers one bachelor [BSc in Fisheries (honors)], four masters [MS in Aquaculture; MS in Fish Breeding and Genetics; MS in Coastal and Marine Science; and MS in Fish Processing and Quality Control] and PhD degrees. The degree programs cover fisheries related all theoretical and technical courses including basic sciences. Major strengths of the discipline are its highly qualified permanent faculty members, standard class size (43 per batch), recently updated syllabus, interdisciplinary approach of the courses, and close proximity to the coastal and marine part of the country, easy access to relevant stakeholders, highly equipped laboratories and experimental fish farms. The laboratories of the discipline are equipped enough to support different tests like proximate composition, PCR tests etc to support all stakeholders in addition to the students. The discipline has a very strong alumni association which is closely associated with academic and non-academic activities for ensuring the quality of the graduates. The graduates of this discipline have already acquired fame in governmental and non-governmental job markets. Our graduates are competent enough to meet the future challenges of fisheries-related issues in the country and the globe as a whole.
