Research Interests

My research projects to date have focussed on: Crustacean biology, culture and nutrition, Sustainable aquaculture techniques and technologies, Novel mari-culture, Marine conservation, Marine survey techniques, Sustainable fisheries management and Interdisciplinary collaboration. My current research focus is on the development of novel aquaculture species with a focus of Seaweed species: including the techniques, technologies, environmental impacts and associated regulatory concidrations.
