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

Focused on farmed finfish, crustaceans and molluscs, our research improves food production from aquaculture species through integrated studies of genetics, physiology, health, aquafeeds, environments and food science.

  • Premium aquaculture breeds

    We partner with the aquaculture industry to develop applied breeding programs for high-value, elite new breeds.

  • Better aquaculture feeds

    We are developing better feeds for aquaculture including developing alternatives to wild-harvest fish meals and oils.

  • Fighting aquatic animal diseases

    Our work promoting aquatic animal health helps to manage pathogens and improve the resistance of aquaculture species to stress and disease.
