Outline Activities
Life histories of fishes are studied in rivers and coastal areas. Especially, fieldworks are often carried out to conservate threatened species and aquatic biodiversity.
Research Interests
  • Study on ecosytem and biodiversity on tidal flats
    keyword : tidal flat, estuary, benthos, salinity
  • Study on the domestic alean fishes in Kyushu Island
    keyword : Domestic alean, internal invasion, distribution pattern, prediction on settlement area
  • Study on the structure of aquatic ecosystem
    keyword : agricultural channel, river mouth, estuary
    2005.04In the cleaks around the Ariake Bay in northern Kyushu Island, I investigate the ecosystem of the freshwater fishes. As of now, it is cleared that several threatened species inhabit in the cleaks, and foreign fish species invade their habitats. Forward, I continue to research to conserve native species..
  • Study on the healthy evaluation of the aquatic ecosystem in rivers
    keyword : stable isotope analysis, feshwater fish, urbanization
    2005.04In the northern Kyushu Island, I research the relationships among the population of the freshwater fishes and the urbanization of the watershed to conserve the environment of the river ecosystems around the citied areas..
  • Study on the distribution, life history, and habitat use of several threatened fishes
    keyword : Threatened fishes, distribution pattern, habitat use, growth, maturity, age
    2005.01Cottus pollux is one of the species on the brink of extinction. MOreover, it is not cleared about the distribution and ecology. We investigate the distribution in the north Kyushu, Japan, and study the relationships between water temperature and the habitats..
  • Study on the life history of catadromous sculpins
    keyword : Catadromous sculpin, Trachidermus fasciatus, Cottus kazika
    1993.04~1999.03This studies is conducted to be clear the growth, migration, and reproduction of Trachidermus fasciatus and Cottus kazika..
