Brief History

Since joining the Aquaculture Section of the Marine Science and Technology department, Gregg has been involved in a diverse array of activities. His research and development activities have included the production of coldwater marine species such as halibut, cod, lobsters, wolffish, sea urchins, haddock and wrasse. He has been involved with a variety of projects including hatchery design and construction, curriculum development, outreach and delivering training and education to a wide variety of recipients from MSc students to nursery children.
