Research Areas: Cryobiology, genetic improvement, stress physiology and nutrition of fish important to aquaculture. My lab is currently involved in research programs to improve the fertilization efficiency of gametes, stored both short- and long-term (cryopreservation) from the striped bass Morone saxatilis, and the stressors which mediate reproductive efficacy of domestic striped bass broodfish. I direct the research activities of faculty and students conducting aquaculture research at my laboratory: the University of Maryland-Crane Aquaculture Facility, including the advisement and training of both undergraduate and graduate students interested in aquaculture, fish biology, and animal science.
