My principle research interest is the improvement of the production and quality of fish through improvements in nutrition and feeding at all life stages of fish especially marine fish species such as Atlantic halibut and Atlantic cod.  Along with my colleagues, we are investigating the formulation and processing of nutritionally complete marine fish diets that will increase the number and viability of marine larval fish.  I am interested in the improvement in the production performance of aquatic organisms by formulating and processing new extruded feeds based on Maine products and on alternative protein feed ingredients.

Research interests

The groundfish fisheries in the Northeast has declined dramatically in rece consumer demand and naturally declining stocks suggest that many of these specie potential for commercial cultivation. However, a major obstacle to cultivation the early life stages. Over the last few years my research has focused on ident rearing technologies to improve survival and growth of cod and haddock larvae. research goal is to develop microparticulate diets that can be used at an early food organisms and to identify optimal feeding protocols for marine larval fish commercialization of these species. Secondarily, I am interested in developing ingredients that can be used in the manufacturing of fish feeds. For example, evaluated the value of sea cucumber-processing waste as a pigment source for Atl grower diets. And currently we are interested in developing products from underu resources to use in larval fish diets.
