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:
Component 1: Selective Breeding, Directed Reproduction, and Development of Genomic Tools
Component 2: Nutrient Requirements and Alternative Protein and Lipid Ingredients
Component 3: Health of Aquatic Animals
Component 4: Sustainable Production Systems
Component 5: Product Quality and New Products
