Acerca de Ana Rubio Zuazo

My research revolves around marine ecology and aquaculture, in particular in relation to the cultivation of oysters. Most of my previous research focused on the Sydney Rock Oyster but currently I am working on a disease related to Pacific Oysters. A number of projects that I am currently involved in are included in this industry website: http://www.southcoastoysterindustry.com.au/ In addition I also work in the Natural Resources Branch of Hornsby Shire Council as an Environmental Scientist working on the implementation of the Lower Hawkesbury Estuary Management Plan.
