Research areas

Aquaculture breeds and feeds

Our Food Futures Flagship research in aquaculture aims to boost the value, competitiveness and sustainability of Australia’s aquaculture industry.

Beef and livestock breeds

Our Food Futures Flagship research in livestock breeds aims to boost the value, competitiveness and sustainability of Australia’s beef industry.

Breed engineering research

The Food Futures Flagship is working with the Australian beef and aquaculture industries to boost their value and deliver improved, high-quality products for consumers.

Our researchers are achieving this through the application of breed engineering and leading-edge animal management technologies for livestock and aquaculture.

The Flagship’s breed engineering research is focused on:

  • beef reproductive systems and management
  • aquaculture breed enhancement for fish, crustaceans and molluscs
  • novel aquaculture feeds including alternatives to wild-harvest fishmeal.
