Seafood Production

Our researchers have skills in fish physiology, animal husbandry and marine science.

Our specialist seafood research facilities include a continuous sea water pumping system through to large-scale tanks, where we maintain a brood stock of wild captured snapper and several growing tanks for aquaculture research. Fish are fed using algae and other feed supplements developed on site.

We also operate a laminar flow tank for research into seafood harvesting technologies. New trawl gear is tested within this tank to examine how it responds to various conditions, before ocean tests are carried out.
