Research Profile

Maria O'Mahoney


My research interests include sea urchin and abalone nutrition and aquaculture.  I am also interested in the development of commercially focussed yet environmentally sound techniques for aquaculture.

As the Manager of the AFDC, I am responsible for the co-ordination of research projects and facilities within the AFDC.  Central to this, is the maintenance of best-practise techniques and adhering to the relevant legislation for aquaculture research.  Into the future, grant capture is a key focus for the AFDC with the ultimate aim of raising the overall profile of the AFDC in the international research domain.
