I am interested in aquaculture for food, aquaculture for conservation, and the ever-evolving interplay between wild-caught fisheries and aquaculture as they contribute to global food systems. I see aquaculture as a solution for protecting our wild fish stocks as well as a sustainable way to feed the growing human population. We culture a wide range of species at UNE and I’m actively involved in the training of undergraduate students in the husbandry of aquatic organisms in marine ornamentals, corals, shellfish and finfish relevant to the aquaculture industry (salmonids, hybrid striped bass, tilapia, etc.).
I currently hold a faculty appointment in the Aquaculture & Aquarium Sciences program, which is an interdisciplinary position split between the Departments of Biology and Marine Science. I am also the Assistant Director for Education at UNE NORTH where I help run the Professional Science Master’s (PSM) in Ocean Food Systems.
