Research Collaborations with Fusion Farming group of companies
Austech Aquaculture and Griffith University
- Population genotyping to assess the level of inbreeding in farmed populations compared with wild stocks and its potential detrimental effect on redclaw viability
- Using metagenomic analyses to investigate the microbiome associated with farmed redclaw to identify potential pathogens or beneficial organisms.
- 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
- The influence of pheromone activity on the reproductive behaviour of redclaw.
