The overall objectives of this research are to better understand the physiological mechanisms that regulate reproduction in finfish and to apply our knowledge of physiological mechanisms to resource conservation (recovery of endangered species) or aquaculture. Our current efforts focus on (1) development of large-scale genomics tools to monitor fish reproductive health in response to environmental stressors, (2) identification of candidate genes that could be manipulated to sterilize cultured marine fish to reduce potential genetic impacts to wild stocks, (3) understanding impacts of climate change to reproduction of salmon and other marine fish, (4) developing methods to induce puberty in captive marine fish, and (5) characterizing the reproductive life history of commercially important species such as sablefish.
