Course taught
:
I have lectured and given practical classes to students on the undergraduate and graduate courses at University of Yangon, Myanmar since 2008. These lectures were on aquaculture productions, water quality, the diseases of aquatic organisms, their pathology, impact to commercial fisheries and research methodology. The lectures were augmented with practical classes on how to detect, observe and collect the diseases from freshwater and marine aquatic organisms and how to measure water quality in aquaculture farms.
