It must become a base department for training of specialists of direction 6.090201 the "Water bioresources and aquiculture" of EQL "Bachelor" and specialty 8.090201 the "Water bioresources" of EQL "Master".

The purpose of Department creation is implementation of the State Program of Ukraine for training of highly qualified specialists for enterprises of the Ministry of agriculture, institutions of the Ministry of environment, security and natural resources, State committee for water management and Agency of fisheries, scientific and research institutions, higher educational institutions of different accreditation levels.

- implementation for results of scientific and technological progress in the fisheries industry;

There is organized the research work in Department, that  lead to:

- development of methods for assessment of hydrobiological resources stocks (including fish resources) in the internal reservoirs of Ukraine, preservation measures for aboriginal ichthyofauna and increase for fish production in natural reservoirs;

- development of theoretical basis of biomonitoring systems for complex fishery reservoirs;

- development of methods for assessment of fish physiology status and management of water quality and reservoirs bioproduction.

The scientific and pedagogical staff of Department developed the number of methodical recommendations on:

assessment of ichthyofauna, its preservation, increase of fish productivity in reservoirs and quality of fish products in natural and quasi-natural freshwater reservoirs of Ukraine;

methods for optimization of ecological condition in reproduction and fish raising;

methods for usage of antistress substances in a fish-farming;

methods for usage of biological active substances (vitamins, micro-, macro elements, etc.) with the aim of metabolism adjusting for fishes and increase of growth intensity;

assessment for ecological state of the fishery reservoirs using the biomonitoring system;

selection for indicatory organisms with the aim of their usage in the biomonitoring system;

selection for integral indicators of indicatory organisms with the aim of their usage in the biomonitoring system.

           Graduates of the Department able to work as teachers of schools, lyceums, colleges, technical schools, universities, as academic staff of institutions of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine, to hold the various positions and head the state enterprises in the fishing industry.
