Primary research activities emphasize the determination of nutritional requirements for fish and shrimp. Research activities include the determination of dietary requirements, development of practical diet formulations and the influence of diet formulations on nutrient loading of culture systems. Research is coordinated to enhance our understanding of nutrient requirements and to develop data needed by the commercial industry. I also maintain research interests geared towards the development of natural spawning techniques and the development of intensive culture techniques for marine fish and shrimp.
