Agricultural science

Agricultural science is one of the field of biology that widely defines the parts of natural, economic and social sciences. It is developed to learn vital practices and experiments related to plant life and the effect of utilizing the agricultural resources on environment.


Aquaculture is also known as fish farming. It involves the growth, development and multiplication of flora and fauna which are found to grow in aquatic environment. It is also involved in the production of seafood.

Aquatic Physiology

The term aquatic physiology deals with the morphology and function of the various parts of the animals and plants that inhabit the aquatic ecosystem. The structural and physiological information helps to study the effect of environmental stress conditions on the aquatic inhabitats.

Biological Sciences

The term biological sciences is also called life sciences. It encloses a broad spectrum of subjects such as molecular biology, ecology, biochemistry, biophysics, genetics and physiology. These subjects are interdisciplinary that relate the morphological and anatomical study of the living organisms.

Environmental Sciences

Environmental science is the branch of science that encompasses the interaction of the biological, chemical and physical constituents of the environment. It also deals with the study of the effects of these constituents on the living organisms in the environment.

Fish Pathology

Fish pathology enables the study of the disease and disease causing pathogens in aquatic organisms, which in turn provide us the knowledge about the disease and disorders caused in humans who feed on seafood along with its cure.

Fisheries Sciences

Fishery sciences concentrate on the biological and ecological features of the fish as resources. Also it encircles the socioeconomic features related to the management involved in fisheries science. Currently, fishery science has developed in three kinds of fisheries: 1) recreational fisheries 2) commercial fisheries and 3) fish farming.

Food Science

Food Science is the science which is involved in the application of principles related to science to create and harvest a convenient and proper food supply. The objective of food science program is to advance the science of food and to certain a safe and abundant food supply which will contribute to the evolvement of healthy world.

Life Sciences

Life science is a multidisciplinary field of science which aims for the national, scientific and economic wellbeing. It looks to the future but also mends a prominent past of science and discovery.

Marine Biology

Marine biology is the study of the inhabitants of marine ecosystem. The development in this field will upgrade our ability to derive food, drinking water, energy sources, waste disposal and transportation from the marine environment.

Molecular Biology

Molecular biology is the branch of biology which deals with the cells, parts, characteristics and chemical processes. It is the building block of genetic engineering. It signifies the mechanism of molecules control, cells growth and propagation.


Nutrition is the practice involving science which is devoted to the process of consuming and utilizing food. Nutrition is taken as the step of biochemical sequences through which biomolecules inside the living organism is transformed from one form to another following the metabolic pathways.


Oceanography is an interdisciplinary science that involves geology, biology, chemistry, and physics which together is been used to study the entire ocean, i.e., from the shallow coastal areas to the deepest trenches.


Poultry is the human practice which provides humans with food and companionship in the form of eggs meat and feathers. The elevation in demand for poultry has resulted in significant in the number of chickens being reared for meat and eggs.

Coastal Studies

Coastal Studies is the study of the coastal zones. Coastal zones play a crucial role as the part of our ecosystem. The ecosystems in the coastal zone are important to study so as to know the biological and economic productivity, erosion control and storm protection.

Aquaculture Nutrition

Aquaculture nutrition has a vital contribution in the sustainable development of the ecosystem. The main objective of aquaculture nutrition is to certain the balanced food portions which should composed of fishmeal and marine oils at an average rate.


Bio-science is the important branch of science for engineers as it aims to serve human well- being. In accordance to it, engineers are made aware of certain streams like mechanical, physics, chemistry, electronics to develop technology to serve the mankind.

Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary Science is the scientific field which encompasses the study and protection of animal production practices, herd health and monitoring spread a widespread fatal diseases. It incorporates the technical skills to prevent diseases in both domestic and wild animals.

Environmental Engineering

Environmental engineering is the branch of engineering science that concentrates on protecting people from the effects of unfavorable environmental conditions and improving environmental quality. The objective of environmental engineering is to make sure that social development and the use of natural resources are intact.


Cryobiology is defined as the study of the effects of subfreezing temperatures on biological systems. It involves the basics of physics and biology. The principle of cryobiology is to provide coherence to the biosphere.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 were cited in 2014 based on a search of the Google Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 than, impact factor = X/Y.
