Our research focus involves partnerships with industry aimed at solving real problems in aquaculture science and production, and to address broader societal issues (e.g., biofuels/energy independence, food security, and restoration of natural populations). The ultimate goal is to help develop a more sustainable aquaculture industry in California.

The elements of our research objectives are:

  • Sponsor an annual colloquium on research needs of the aquaculture industry.
  • Generate support for infrastructure to create state-of-the-art facilities.
  • Advance¬†research designed to answer relevant questions regarding sustainable practices.
