Interested in Aquaculture and sustainable food production?
Aquaculture has grown rapidly worldwide. One of the main challenges the industry faces is its reliance on unsustainable fish meal as a feed ingredient. Insects are a natural part of the diet of many fish species, which makes them a promising alternative to the use of fish meal in aquaculture diets.
Based on the results from our pilot studies, this project, which is co-funded by the Fisheries Research Development Cooperation (FRDC), and linked to a small local company, Future Green Solutions, will explore the viability of insect meal produced from Black Soldier Fly larvae as a food source for growing fin fish. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you will explore the growth performance and palatability of both rainbow trout and barramundi when fed varying amounts of insect meal. We are looking for a dynamic individual with practical abilities and an interest in aquaculture nutrition and diet formulation that has the drive to help shape this exciting PhD project.
