Senior Scientist

Ph.D. 1978, University of Guelph, Canada
At IOLR since 1978

Research interests:
Studies on marine fish larval physiology and nutrition, with an emphasis on the development of microdiets. Present activity is in the area of environmental and nutritional cues for malformation and sex determination at the early larval stages. Presently involved in the domestication of the blue fin tuna, with an emphasis on its larval rearing. An incubator company (FeedPro) is presently in its third year of development of the NCM oral vaccination approach.
