The department teaches and researches in the fields of, Cryopreservatioon of gametes and embryos of penaid prawns, Eye stalk neuropeptides and control of reproduction in the decapod crustaceans, Molecular aspects of reproduction in the decapod crustaceans, Biochemistry of spermatophores and seminal plasma in Scylla serrata, Biofouling: Environmental impact assessment, Water, Quality, Viral diseases of shrimp Aquaculture of live food organism,Mass culture of fairyshrimps and brine Immunobiology of cultivable aquatic invertebrates, Physiology of respiratory pigments, Heavy metal regulation in arthropods, Cell surface glycoprotenis, Cancer and free radical biology etc.

The department of Botany was started in 1929 for generating specilization in the field of Algology. In 1944 the emphasis shifted to Plant Pathology. In 1963 it was chosen for elevation as a Centre for Advanced Study by the Univeristy Grants Commission.
