Ross Houston Genetically Improves Aquaculture Species to Advance Breeding Programs

In Africa, Agriculture, Live Introductions, Publisher Channel, Technology by Blessing Enofe

Ross Houston is the Director of Innovation at Benchmark Genetics, a leading international aquaculture breeding company. Houston is currently located in the UK.

Joined by Faith Ojetayo, an aquaculture and fisheries expert in Nigeria and Adrian Piers, an aquaculture consultant at African Fish, Ltd. in Zambia, the three embarked on an immersive conversation primarily focused on applying genetics within species of fish.

Hosted by Frontrunners Development President, Mary Kurek, this chat included a cursory unfolding of the multi-layered subject of genetics in the world of aquatic food sources and breeding techniques, (particularly in Africa) along with the challenges and benefits of continued work in the space.

Special thanks to Faith Ojetayo for requesting this very meaningful conversation.
