My research interests include the nutrient enrichment of unconventional plant ingredients and replacement of fishmeal; farm-made feeds for brackishwater finfishes and polyculture; and nutrient requirements of brackishwater fish and shellfish species. My research area also includes feed development and culture of hilsa shad (Tenualosa ilisha), a migratory fish. I have twenty years’ research experience in the field of brackishwater finfish and shellfish nutrition and feed biotechnology. I am a recipient of the Endeavour Research Fellowship of the Australian Government and Nanaji Deshmukh Award for Outstanding Interdisciplinary Team Research from ICAR, Government of India. I am an Executive Committee member of the Society of Coastal Aquaculture and Fisheries in India.
