Research Integrated Research & Development and a Multidisciplinary Approach is OI's Strength

OI's scientific research is integrated across programs it is not restricted within separate programs. Respected and professional scientists share diverse expertise, and work in teams to exchange, synthesize and build upon one another's experience. For example, intimately associated with raising finfish or shrimp for stock enhancement or farming, is the challenge to develop low-cost, environmentally-aware feeds.
