My research interests include the breeding and culture of freshwater fish, and healthy aquaculture technology and management. I have fifteen years’ research experience in breeding and culture of freshwater fish; the development of stock enhancement programmes for integrated fish farming incorporating fish and vegetables; and industrial in-pond raceway recirculating aquaculture technology. I am a master student supervisor of the College of Fisheries and Life Science, Shanghai Ocean University, and a scientific Special Commissioner of Aquaculture in Jiangsu province, China.
