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.
