So, I started doing my research in aquaculture production @ breeding and later move to aquaculture nutrition for my Doctorate studies. It open my eyes to various problems and opportunities to meet the human protein demand without putting a strain in natural populations.
Since then, I've shared my knowledge with students, mentoring them in aquaculture projects and now I'd love to share it with the world.
