Mithun Sukumaran

I completed a BSc degree in Zoology (with Aquaculture as specialization) from St. Aloysius College, Edathua (Kerala-India) and an MSc degree in Aquatic Biology & Fisheries at the University of Kerala, (Trivandrum-India). Since leaving University, I worked as a research fellow at NSS College, Pandalam on a project related to 'biodiversity assessment, nutritional status and economic evaluation of non-target species wasted by trawlers in the fishing harbors of Kerala'. I am currently back to school and based at the Institute for Tropical Aquaculture, Universiti Terangannu Malaysia, (Kuala Terangannu, Malaysia) working with Tiger Groupers and their larviculture management.
