Dr. Andrew J. Ray got his Ph. D., Coastal Sciences, University of Southern Mississippi, Ocean Springs, MS, USA, 2012. he is working as an Assistant Professor in Aquaculture Research Center Kentucky State University at united states. Dr. Ray’s research is focused on the development of sustainable aquaculture systems and practices. Aquaculture now provides half of the world’s seafood and the industry is growing faster than any other food sector to keep up with rising demand. Dr. Ray is conducting work geared toward ensuring that the industry progresses in an ecologically-friendly manner. His work is relevant to local farmers in Kentucky and throughout the world. Dr. Ray’s research includes repurposing abandoned municipal and agricultural infrastructure, using reclaimed water for fish production, integrated fish and plant production, photosynthetically-driven aquaculture technology, and improving recirculating aquaculture systems technology. One of his foci has been biofloc-based aquaculture technology in which a dense microbial community in the water column breaks down waste and recycles nutrients so that feed efficiency is significantly increased. Dr. Ray has examined water quality, isotope dynamics, nutrient cycling, microbial ecology and management, novel feed formulations, artificial seawater development, and waste remediation techniques. Dr. Ray currently works with tilapia, brackish-water shrimp, paddlefish, and hybrid striped bass; he has plans to work with Australian red claw crayfish and largemouth bass as well in the near future.
