Hallerman Presents at 19th International Symposium on Genetics in Aquaculture

Fisheries and wildlife sciences department head Eric Hallerman traveled with his wife, Ester, to Thailand last summer, where he gave a presentation at the 19th International Symposium on Genetics in Aquaculture. Her Royal Highness Princess Dr. Chulabhorn Mahidol, who holds a Ph.D. in aquaculture genetics, opened the symposium, featuring 300 attendees from 42 countries. Supawadee Poompuang (’08 Ph.D. in fisheries and wildlife sciences) was a co-convener of the symposium, and current doctoral student and Thai national Pawapol Kinghum presented a poster on disease resistance genes in common carp. Conference tours included tilapia and shrimp farms, a floating market, and the ruins of Ayuthaya, the historic capital of Thailand, which is now a UNESCO site.
