Brief synopsis of current research:
I am researching more cost-effective diets for shellfish in hatcheries. (Presently live phytoplankton diets are fed to shellfish in hatcheries in the aquaculture industry.) I am looking at more effecient ways to grow quality phytoplankton for shellfish diets. The two best species to date are Chaeteros muelleri and Isochrysis galbana.
