Annual Reports
headline bar

Fiscal year 2017 was the third year of externally-reviewed five-year project plans (2015- 2019) that fall under the five Components of the National Aquaculture Action Plan which are: 

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

Although these project plans guide most of the efforts of the laboratories, we remain flexible to respond to unanticipated challenges and opportunities. NP 106 research covers the spectrum from fundamental to applied research, and is focused on solving problems through long term high impact research. NP 106 scientists published 73 articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals in fiscal year 2017.
