The activities of the Fisheries Biology and Hydroecology (FBH) research group have been directed to marine resource management, studying the age, growth, reproduction and diet of several fish and cephalopod species. Since late 1990’s, special attention has been directed to the technical and biological basis for the culture of cuttlefish, Sepia officinalis (Cephalopoda, Sepiidae). More recently, seahorse and pipefish culture and conservation is another line of research considered in the FBH. Since 1995, a total of 43 graduation students, 10MSc students, 6 PhD students and 5 post-doctoral researchers have contributed to the research activities of the FBH.
