OBJECTIVES:
To develop basic and applied research
To develop innovative technology
To form postgraduate students highly qualified
Research is carried out to increase production of aquatic organisms. It mainly
addresses uni and multicellular organisms, which have a potential or have proven a
capability for aquaculture, either for human consumption or industrial use. Research
also includes studies for species protection and their habitat.
Research lines
• Design and development of aquaculture system
technologies.
• Ecophysiology of aquatic organisms
• Nutrition and feeding
• Pathology
• Reproduction, genetics and development of aquatic
organisms
 Design and development of Aquaculture Technologies
Design and development of technologies for farming of species
with commercial value.
Recirculating aquaculture systems are preferred – environmental
friendlier.
Proven in tilapia, oysters, shrimp, among others.
Development of a aquaculture closed systems for pilot
commercial farming of the white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei

Culture of larval and postlarval stages of
the spiny lobster, Panulirus interruptus, in
the North Pacific
Biological stress indicators in
aquatic organisms
Aquatic organisms termorregulation as
a tool to predict climate change
 Nutrition and feeding of aquatic organisms
Nutrition and farming of marine fishes
To determine the environmental and nutritional requirements of marine
fishes at different development stages (larvae, juveniles and adults).
Nowadays we are working on halibut, yellow tail, corvina, tuna and
totoaba.
.
Dr. Juan Pablo Lazo
Development of balanced feed for
aquaculture of yellow tail.
Intensive culture of the California
halibut (Paralichthys californicus) in
recirculating aquaculture systems
Dr. Benjamín
Barón
The first marine fish production laboratory
in Mexico
Biology and Culture of Microalgae
Isolation and biological, nutritional and biochemical characterization of
microalgae. Design of mass production farming systems to improve
nutritional value and production of biological compounds.

species/strains
 Reproduction, Genetics and Development
Reproduction and development
In aquaculture, it is important to study the endogenous and
exogenous factors, which control reproduction.
This area also considers the ontogenetic studies in order to

obtain juveniles
from the wild and under controlled conditions.
Preliminary studies on sperm and
larval cryopreservation of abalone,
Haliotis spp.
National Germplasm of Aquatic
Organisms
Control of marine fish reproduction

Genetics
Population and molecular genetics of aquaculture species in order to help in
aquaculture breeding programs for fast growth and ill resistance organisms.
Focused in mollusk and crustacean genetics
Dr. Miguel Ángel
del Río
Pathology and Animal Health of Aquacit Organisms
The main action to prevent illnesses in aquaculture is prevention.
It is important to know critical points and risk factors in culture
conditions.
Pathological diagnosis of mollusks
Animal health status in cultured mollusks in
