My research experience covers general aquaculture, shellfish genetics and biotechnology, germplasm preservation, and cytogenetics. The molluscan shellfish species I have worked on include scallops, oysters, clams, and abalones. The goal of my program is to conduct research on molluscan shellfish aquaculture production, technologies, applications, and restoration, and to coordinate with the extension team in producing educational resources and demonstrations directly applicable to industry needs. The research scope includes: 1) Selective breeding programs for local aquaculture shellfish species; 2) Cryopreservation of germplasm for aquaculture species for hatchery use and breeding programs; 3) Aquaculture of new native species to diversify the aquaculture industry, and 4) Development of new aquaculture techniques for hatchery, nursery, and grow out to enhance the shellfish industry.
