Conduct basic research básica on molecular, biochemical and physiological aspects of aquatic organisms in order to achieve their domestication for comercial cultivation and/or restockings of natural population.


Contribute to the welfare of society through scientific research, technological innovation and development of human resource, in biological conservation and sustainable management of natural resources.


Constantly seek for quality and excellence in order to prevail as a reference group, national and internationally, in research on physiological and ecological aspects of aquatic organisms.
