Biochemistry Unit

Facilities available for research and extension

Department has research facility to study chemical parameters and indices of spoilage in fish and fishery products. Biochemical analysis can be done using both traditional laboratory techniques and modern techniques like chromatography and electrophoresis. There are plans to increase the applications of these techniques to new areas of fisheries research, teaching and extension. Testing fish and fishery products and water for their quality in fish processing industries guiding them in inplant chlorination and implementing HACCP by controlling the chemical parameters during processing.
