Research Collaborations

Research Collaborations with Fusion Farming group of companies

Austech Aquaculture and Griffith University

  1. Population genotyping to assess the level of inbreeding in farmed populations compared with wild stocks and its potential detrimental effect on redclaw viability
  2. Using metagenomic analyses to investigate the microbiome associated with farmed redclaw to identify potential pathogens or beneficial organisms.
  3. Improved disease management by developing molecular/genomic diagnostics assays for pathogen loads in redclaw and the culture systems.

Austech Aquaculture and University of the Sunshine Coast

  1. The influence of pheromone activity on the reproductive behaviour of redclaw.
