Research and Education
To achieve successful conservation and sustainable use of marine and freshwater fish resources, we have to get basic knowledge of thier spawning ecology and early life history of each fish species.
My study themes are summarised as follows:
1. Morphology, taxonomy, growth and distribution of leptocephalus larvae.
2. Population structure and recruitment strategies of anguilliform fishes.
3. Spawning and migration of marine and freshwater eels.
4. Diet of leptocephalus larvae and fundamental study of artificially production of important marine eels and freshwater eels.
5. Ontogeny and systematics of fishes.
6. Early life histories of commercial puffer fishes.
