Aquaculture Program

Nutrition Wet Laboratory

Two controlled-environment laboratories, each with twenty four 75-L aquaria supported by a recirculating aquaculture system, for nutritional studies on juvenile stages of marine finfish. Currently, dietary protein, lipid and mineral requirements of juvenile black sea bass, flounder and red porgy are being evaluated. Based on results, diets are re-formulated and compared against top-rated commercially available diets.
