92-433 Environmental Biology of Fishes
*Three electives.

*Lists of suggested electives should be obtained from Department of Zoology advisors.


Students may select either a program in Fisheries Biology or, in consultation with faculty and departmental advisors, choose a course of study providing for concentration in a more specialized area such as Ichthyology, Aquaculture, Limnology, Aquatic Pollution, or Fisheries Science. Students wishing a combined fish and wildlife oriented program can fulfill this objective through the use of electives. In the early semesters, students should select as electives those courses that will be needed as prerequisites for their 7th and 8th semester electives.
