My four remaining graduate students are involved in studies of water quality in “split-ponds” for channel catfish production, solubility of liming materials used in aquaculture, effects of mechanical aeration on evaporation and water temperature in ponds, and a survey of water quality at aquaculture facilities in Uganda.
I am personally collaborating with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) on a project to assess indicators of sustainable shrimp farming. In addition, I am working with WWF and Dr. Li Li of Ocean University of China on use of elemental fingerprinting to determine the geographic origin of farmed shrimp. I am collaborating with AquaSol (an aquaculture consulting company) to refine mechanical aeration and water circulation systems for shrimp ponds.
My main outreach effort is a column on aquaculture (mostly about water quality issues and environmental management) that I have written bimonthly for the Global Aquaculture Advocate since 1999.
I also believe that my several books on aquaculture water quality and aquaculture and the environment have been useful in outreach efforts.
