Highlights of aquaculture research in the National Sea Grant Program

, : Highlights of aquaculture research in the National Sea Grant Program. Bulletin of National Research Institute of Aquaculture 0(SUPPL 2): 89-93

The National Sea Grant College Program supports aquaculture research at 29 coastal and Great Lakes states. The research program is focused on a broad range of aquaculture topics including aquaculture system development, genetics, physiology and endocrinology, nutrition, disease diagnosis and control, and policy and regulations. Marine and Great Lakes species including coldwater, coolwater, and warmwater species are being investigated. Past research has led to the establishment of new industries including hybrid striped bass culture, triploid oysters for the Pacific Northwest, softshell crab culture, hard clam production, improved salmon strains for pen culture, and a variety of other technologies used throughout the aquaculture industry. Several new Sea Grant research developments from different geographic regions of the United States will be discussed. Topics include algal production, effects of beneficial bacteria on water quality and survival, and computer control of aquaculture systems.

Furthermore, PB induced DNA-methyltransferases (DNMTs) activi...
