The mariculture lab develops and commercializes shrimp and sea urchin farming industries for Texas and the U.S., as well as developing sea urchin feed and production technology for biomedical and ecotoxicological research and starfish feed and production for regeneration and stem cell production. In addition, the lab evaluates fishery processing, biofuel and biodiesel, and grain crops as nutritional replacements in shrimp feeds.
