About the Project

Project summary:

The ARC Research Hub for Supercharging Tropical Aquaculture through Genetic Solutions will involve work with four species (pearl oysters, barramundi, seaweed, and grouper) with the aim to apply various genetic and technological approaches to boost productivity of farming, improve breeding outcomes and lower risks associated with disease with key industry partners.  The projects will deliver outcomes that include selection of genetic lines for fast growth, product quality and pathogen tolerance, improve hatchery breeding processes, improve biosecurity and lower threat of disease, plus delivering on farm solutions to better understand how the farm environment interacts with the culture species to boost productivity outcomes.

8 x MSc/PhD opportunities within the ARC Research Hub
