Impact on Aquaculture

With 14 ongoing projects, 18 pre-proposals, a bi-annual project monitoring, and reporting requirements, it looks to be a busy summer for Cheng-Sheng Lee and the Center for Tropical and Subtropical Aquaculture.

In his latest Regional e-Notes, Cheng-Sheng hits some recent CTSA highlights, including:

  • Improving the commercial aquaculture feasibility for Yellow Tang (Zebrasoma flavescens)
  • Culture of a Local Marine Polychaete,Marphysa sanguinea, for Use as a Shrimp Maturation Feed
  • Bivalve Farming in Hawai'i
  • AquaClip: ASC to tackle "one of biggest threats to aquaculture’s reputation" with new feed standard

CTSA is one of five regional aquaculture centers established by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture in support of commercial aquaculture development. CTSA was established in 1986 and is jointly administered by CTAHR and the Oceanic Institute of Hawaiʻi Pacific University.
