The vision for ARS aquaculture research and technology transfer is to support a thriving domestic industry based on improved genetic stocks and scientific information on biotechnologies and management practices to ensure a high quality, safe supply of healthful seafood and aquatic products.
The mission of the Aquaculture National Program is to conduct high quality, relevant, fundamental, and applied aquaculture research, to improve the systems for raising domesticated aquaculture species, and to transfer technology to enhance the productivity and efficiency of U.S. producers and the quality of seafood and other aquatic animal products.
The Components of this Research Program are:
·Understanding, Improving, and Effectively Using Animal Genetic and Genomic Resources
·Enhancing Animal Performance, Well-being and Efficiency in Diverse Production Systems
·Defining Nutrient Requirements, Nutrient Composition of Feedstuffs and Expanding Alternative Ingredients
·Improving Health and Welfare of Aquatic Animals
·Improving Production Systems, Developing New Products and Enhancing Product Quality
