The research topic of our lab focus on aquaculture physiology, especially molecular stress responses. Stress is an unavoidable component of the animals in aquaculture environment. Aquaculture species under intensive culture conditions are usually exposed to diverse environmental stressors. Environmental stress would cause adverse effects on physiological regulation, including immunity. Therefore, the water quality of aquaculture pond is tightly correlated to the fitness of cultivated animals. The major goal of our research is to adopt science-based research and practices for establishing appropriate criteria for water quality management of aquaculture ponds to reduce and minimize stress and avoid the occurrence of severely harmful effects at population level.
