- Test the effect of high dietary vitamin C as a treatment to reduce bacterial disease losses in Chinese catfish farmed in Hawaii.
- Monitor the effectiveness of IHHNV decontamination on a shrimp farm in Hawaii.
- Test the susceptibility of the endemic caridean shrimp, Halocaridina rubra, to infection and disease by the penaeid shrimp viruses IHHNV and the newly discovered Taura syndrome virus.
- Work on the development of practical, on-farm measures to mitigate the impact of Taura syndrome on penaeid shrimp farming.
- Provide diagnostic and health management support to CTSA-funded Ornamental Aquaculture Technology Transfer project.
