Dr Nick Elliott: improving aquaculture and beef productivity

Dr Nick Elliott leads a multi-disciplinary team involved in the research, development and application of new technologies for improving aquaculture and beef production in Australia.

About National Research Flagships

Improving lives, through partnerships focused on Australia's most significant challenges and opportunities.

Fish oils for good health

Healthy fish oils, also known as long chain omega-3 fatty acids, have earned the reputation as one of the best bioactives yet discovered.

Fast tracking oil genes

This two-page information sheet is about a new method for assembling gene groups to make better crops.

Stability, reliability and predictive validity of the Food Technology Neophobia Scale

Abstract for the Stability, reliability and predictive validity of the Food Technology Neophobia Scale presented at the 8th Pangborn Symposium, Florence, July 2009.

Food Technology Neophobia Scale

The Food Technology Neophobia Scale attempts to quantify the fear of novel food technologies amongst consumers. (1 page)

Partnering for the future of Australia’s agrifood industry

The Food Futures Flagship is seeking partners to help realise the Flagship's goals of annually adding A$3 billion in value to the Australian agrifood sector.

Quality biosensors

The Food Futures Flagship is pioneering biosensor technology which can be applied to food manufacturing, healthcare and Australia’s biosecurity and defence efforts.

The CYBERNOSE® technology

The CYBERNOSE® device mimics the sophisticated smell receptors of nematode worms to detect and measure odours and chemicals from a range of substances.

Olfactory pattern recognition research cluster

The Food Futures Flagship worked with the Australian National University, Monash University and the University of Queensland to create a new generation of electronic nose - a Cybernose.

About the CYBERNOSE® biosensor

Inspired by nature and a result of pioneering research, our biosensors mimic the sophisticated smell receptors of simple animals to detect and measure odours and chemicals in a range of substances.

Applications of CYBERNOSE® technology

The CYBERNOSE® biosensor technology can be adapted to and applied across a wide range of industries and uses, wherever rapid or ongoing information about a chemical environment is needed.

Engineering better Australian seafood and beef

The Food Futures Flagship is boosting the value, competitiveness and sustainability of Australia's seafood and beef industries.

Breed engineering: aquaculture research

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

Improving cattle sperm sorting

Our researchers have studied the cell surface of bull sperm to generate information that may be used in novel reproductive technologies for dairy and beef cattle.

Physiology for aquaculture in changing climates

The climate change physiology laboratory is a joint CSIRO and University of Tasmania laboratory based in Hobart, Tasmania.

Breeding the horns out of cattle

A discovery by CSIRO scientists has been central to the development of an accurate DNA test that may help the Australian cattle industry end the painful practice of dehorning beef cattle.

Biosensors to monitor abalone in aquaculture

Researchers are using biosensor technology to investigate the physiology of cultured abalone with the aim of improving farming techniques and transport of these animals.

Katharina Alter: researching abalone physiology

Ms Alter studies the physiology of abalone in aquaculture.

Advances in cattle breeding

The Food Futures Flagship has demonstrated successful transfer of testis germ cells in ruminants.

Biosensors for salmon in aquaculture

We are examining the physiology of Atlantic salmon to help improve hatchery and farming practices.

Adding soluble fibre to staple grains

The development of grains with higher levels of β-glucan was one research achievement of the High Fibre Grains Collaboration Cluster, which formally closed in March this year.
