Dr Dave Jones is employed as the Research Fellow from College of Science & Engineering, Centre for Sustainable Tropical Fisheries and Aquaculture from James Cook University, Australia
My career so far has consisted of applying genetic and genomic tools to address research questions with a strong applied aquaculture industry focus. I have more than 9 years’ experience working in quantitative and population genetics of marine wildlife and commercially important species (including pearl oysters, shrimp, damselfish, lobster and catfish). During this time I have been heavily involved in three multi-million dollar research projects aiming to improve production traits in pearl oysters and the white-legged shrimp.
