Applied Marine Biology (AMB) is a marine science course with an emphasis on research applications to all aspects connected with harvesting food from natural and aquacultured marine animals and plants. Grounded in basic sciences in the first year, AMB students receive instruction and training in a broad range of techniques and subject areas, including ecology, physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Students will become familiar with many different animals and plants, both in the laboratory and in the field, including various kinds of fishes and shellfish, and other interesting organisms such as sea urchins, macroalgae (seaweeds) and microalgae (microplankton). Opportunities are also available for working at the biochemical level on novel substances of potential use as medicines. In short, training is available in all aspects of the Faculty of Agriculture themes of "Food, Health and Environment."
