The physiological plasticity of yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi) in response to varying nutrition: improving YTK aquaculture through better feed formulation.

Caroline Candebat completed her BSc. in Biology (2014) and MSc. in Marine Ecosystem and Fisheries Science (2017) at the University of Hamburg in Germany. Throughout her academic life she has been working on bioenergetics and ecophysiology of larval and juvenile fish.

Caroline is currently enrolled at JCU as a PhD student, but conducting research at the Port Stephens Fisheries Institute in NSW under the K4P research project. This project involves the growth of a profitable, innovative and collaborative Australian yellowtail kingfish aquaculture industry. Her PhD measures the effect of economically sustainable sources of protein, lipid and carbohydrate on an aquacultural species metabolism, which is being exposed to varying abiotic factors.
