The CNRDPA is organized into four research divisions
The aquaculture division is responsible for conducting a research programme that contributes to the sustainable development of marine and inland aquaculture while preserving the environment and the resource. Its main missions are the development of water resources, the evaluation and management of aquaculture resources and the reproduction of species of aquaculture interest.
Director of the division : Mr Chebel Fateh
