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.
Major areas of research:Biochemical analysis forms an important aspect of research in most research programmes of PG students. The department has been part of it. These include studies on proteins, lipids indices of quality of fish and fishery products, and their changes during storage.
