Research activity

We are actively engaged in studying the biology, ecosystems, and environement of the East China Sea, as well as nearby waters such as the Ariake Sea and Omura Bay. We are also actively involved in collaborating with academic staff within the Nagasaki University and outside of the university to conduct research concerning these areas. Presently there are 5 full-time faculty members stationed at the Institute, who are engaged in research topics such as "elucdiating the mechanisms by which red-tides and oxygen poor water bodies occur and their effect on ecosystems," "the effects of ocean acidification and warming on marine organisms," "physiology and endocrinology of fish reproduction," "the effects of climate change of the movement ecology of fish," "hydodynamics and the ecophysiology of seaweed beds and seagrass meadows." Research is also being conducted on fish from the the southern regions of the East China Sea.
