About Alyssa Joyce

Alyssa Joyce (Docent / Associate Professor in the Department of Marine Sciences) has worked internationally in a wide range of research and industrial facilities on projects aimed at addressing challenges in aquaculture production, specifically raising, harvesting and handling seafood safely and profitably. Her group currently focuses on a wide range of production issues including:

• Marine technologies for offshore, intertidal and recirculating aquaculture • Live-feed production and hatchery technology • Developmental physiology of fish and molluscs • Antibacterial resistance and targeted drug delivery for pathogen control in aquaculture • Re-utilization of sludge waste in aquaponics

Current PhD students and postdocs in Dr. Joyce’s lab are working on:

Probiotics and reducing use of antibiotics (antimicrobial resistance) in fish farming • Microalgal-bacterial exopolymers in hatchery production, and algal quality for optimizing live larval feeds • Physiology and selective breeding in shellfish hatchery production • Neuroendocrine control of settlement and metamorphosis in bivalves for hatchery applications • Fish recirculating aquaculture systems with hydroponic plant production (aquaponics) • Role of vitamins in bivalve metabolism

Alyssa and her team have long-term collaborations with labs in the UK, Europe, Canada, USA and Australia. With funding from VR-SIDA, they are also working in South East Asia, South America and the South Pacific.
