Development of captive breeding techniques for marine ornamental fish

Bill completed his BSc and Honours degree at University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada. Upon graduation at UBC, he completed a research project investigating the effects of salinity on growth rate and flesh quality of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) reared in land-based recirculating aquaculture system. Bill is interested in aquaculture research in general, and has particularly keen interest on developing culturing techniques for new aquaculture candidates.

Bill's PhD project focuses on reproductive biology and larvae rearing techniques for marine ornamental fish. Developing breeding techniques for popular aquarium fish could potentially provide a sustainable solution to meet the increasing demand of marine ornamental fish around the world.
