PhD in Fish Nutrition

"Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" - Chinese proverb

Would it be great if you teach him how to culture the fish?

That's what I believe. I am a true believer in sustainable farming. 

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.
