Research Scientist

biography

OlufemiOluseunAjiboyeis a Principal Research Scientist at the Nigerian Institute for Oceanography and Marine Research, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria. He received B.Sc (Hons) in Zoology from University of Ilorin, Nigeria. He had his M.Sc (Animal Science) and M.Sc (Fisheries) from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria and University of Benin, Benin City, Nigeria respectively. Currently, he is the Head of the Fin/Shell Fish Culture Section at the outstation of the research institute in Sapele, Delta State, Nigeria. He has published articles in both national and international peer-reviewed journals. His current research interests are aquaculture-based project on fish stress/environmental physiology, and/or immunity.
