1) Describe the taxonomic classification, fundamental behavior and ecology of fishes.
2) Identify various anatomical structures, in addition to describing their functions as well as a range of physiological processes commonly observed in fishes.
3) Compare and contrast the impacts caused by commercial versus conservation practices and restoration techniques used today.
4) Demonstrate proficiency in a variety of fish collection techniques.
5) Perform proper preservation and identification techniques for adult and larval fishes in field and laboratory settings.
