Alumna Thao Huynh publishes article based on MMA Thesis

Congratulations to SMEA alumna Thao Huynh (MMA 2018) and her co-authors from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and Washington State University for publishing an article based on Huynh’s MMA thesis. Her thesis involved careful experimental and histological work on the reproductive biology of black cod, with a view of finding effective sterilization methods to allow for farming them in sea cages. This research was conducted during a Research Assistantship with NMFS. The article, “Inhibition of ovarian development and instances of sex reversal in genotypic female sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria) exposed to elevated water temperature,” is published in the Journal of General and Comparative Endocrinology. Professor Eddie Allison writes, “This is a great example of the kind of fundamental science required to support decision-making over environmentally-conscious aquaculture development.”
