Aquaculture Students Graduate

Six Aquaculture Research Center Students (Thomas Allin Delomas from Lexington, KY; Richard Cameron Bryant from Autaugaville, AL; Grant Christian Currin from San Diego, CA; Luke Oliver from Palmyra, ME; Alexander Paul Philipchik from Delmar, NY; and Zachary A. Kupchinsky from Tamaqua, PA) were candidates for graduation during the One Hundred and Twenty-Sixth Commencement Convocation. All six graduate with a Masters of Science in Aquaculture and Aquatic Sciences from the College of Agriculture, Food Science, and Sustainable Systems.

Large Spawn at the KSU Aquaculture Hatchery

This past week, Dr. Boris Gomelsky and his graduate students, Thomas Delomas and Jeffery Warner were busy spawning koi and koi x goldfish hybrids. A total of 10 different crosses of fish were performed and now are in the McDonlad incubation jars in the hatchery.

Dr. Gomelsky's research projects cover three following areas: evaluation of reproductive ability of triploid koi females, production and investigation of koi x goldfish hybrids and analysis of color inheritance in koi.

While working in the hatchery, KSU researchers received help from a visitor, Mr. Mark Einkenberry. Mark is the owner and operator of Sweetwater Spring Fish Farm in Peru, Indiana. Mark came to the KSU Aquaculture facility to learn methods for production of koi x goldfish hybrids by artificial spawning. Mr. Einkenberry presumes that these hybrids have a strong potential as an edible fish for Asian consumers in the United States.

KSU Addresses Food Safety Concerns with Aquaponics

 Kentucky State University's Aquaculture Research Center will be starting a series of research trials to assess food safety concerns in aquaponics. While aquaponics produce is generally thought to be free of human pathogens, it is possible for bacteria to be introduced in the system from visitors, workers, fish feed, and insects naturally occurring in the environment.

Over the next few months, we will be implementing a variety of experiments that will explore ways to insure aquaponic producers are delivering a safe food product to consumers. All microbiology work will be conducted in the Disease Diagnostics Lab here at KSU. In these photos, researcher, Janelle Hager, is pouring selective microbiology media used to isolate specific food-related pathogens.
