SCRC: PhD : Understanding penaeid prawn sex determination and developing monosex induction strategies for commercial application (Andrew Foote)

Domestication and selective breeding programs in a number of cultured penaeid shrimp species worldwide have substantially improved commercially desirable traits compared to wild stocks. Improvements in growth rates, feed conversion efficiency, disease resistance and survival have been achieved in...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H3.1– Impact of commercial hatchery practices on the contribution of broodstock to offspring and genetic diversity in the Yellowtail Kingfish breeding program (Dr Alex Safari: Student Daniel Tan)

Using small numbers of broodstock for breeding often leads to random drift in gene frequencies between generations. Effective population size (Ne) is used as an indicator to assess the rate of inbreeding and loss of genetic variation in small populations. In this study we used six microsatellites,...

SCRC: Population genetic structure of Sea Cucumbers (bêche-de-mer) in Northern Australia

Sandfish (Holothuria scabra), a commercially important species of Sea Cucumber, are fished off the northern Australian coast. Elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region, where they are commonly fished, they have been found to be particularly vulnerable to over-exploitation. Currently, as little is known...

SCRC: SCRC Honours Scholarship H4.5 Improved Yellowtail Kingfish Growth Response, Flesh Quality and PUFA content through Biorefinery Microalgae LC-PUFA Aqua-Feed Additives (Prof Wei Zhang; Student Kopano Maso Machailo)

Yellowtail Kingfish is an emerging aquaculture species, and there is an increase in the demand for the fish, both for recreational fishing and for export purposes. This has led to the growth of the aquaculture industry that specialises in culture of yellowtail kingfish in South Australia. Currently...

Seafood CRC: Development of a genetic management and improvement strategy for Australian cultured Barramundi

The aim of this study was to review existing Barramundi-related genetic knowledge to identify relevant research and where the R&D gaps preventing instigation of Barramundi breeding programs presently exist. They identified and prioritised the research and steps that need to be taken to establish...
