The Research Group of Fish Physiological Ecology is focusing on the physiological ecology of aquaculture animals including nutrition and feed technology in relation to environmental factors so as to provide basic theory and technology for intensive aquaculture.
Current research interests:
* Nutrition and feeds in aquatic animals: nutrients requirement, nutrient metabolism, feed utilization, new alternative proteins, nutrition and environment, nutrition and stress, genetics and regulation of animal nutrient metabolism
* Theory and technology of accurate aquaculture: dynamic modeling of feeding and conditional nutrient requirements so as to support the cost-effective and sustainable aquaculture
* Comparative physio-ecology: nutritional energetics in relation to fish food habits so as to investigate different characteristics of fishes in different food habits
* Feed supply and product quality: the effects of diet formulation and feeding regime on fish quality, impact of dietary toxins on fish so as to improve animal welfare, feed sanitation, food safety and fish quality
