(a) Utilization of alternative sources of feedstuffs and agro-by products for fish feed with full emphasis on non-conventional, cheap and affordable ingredients.

(b) Coastal & Marine Studies – Community and local participatory programme.

(c) The exploitation, utilization and management of these resources can not be separated from the local coastal communities, hence my focus targets both the resources and the people that depends on these resources for their existence.
