• Freshwater Fisheries Research Center


    Freshwater Fisheries Research Center is located at the side of Taihu Lake, Wuxi, it was jointly emerged from “Taihu Experimental Base for Fishery Enhancement” and “Asia-Pacific Regional Research And Training Center for Integrated Fish Farming” both established in Dec. 1978. Now the Center is equipped with over 180 staff members, out of 43 are senior research fellows, 22 of them have been honored with the Government-granted Allowances, 17 of them are doctorate and other graduate advisors. There have awarded with 4 State-level prizes; 31 Ministry and Province-level prizes; 28 national patents. There are over 800 quality papers along with over 100 books of the subject matters. The dominant discipline in the center’s research program consist of Genetic Breeding and Bio-techniques; Inland Fisheries Enhancement and Aquaculture; Principles and Practices of Integrated Fish Farming; Fishery Environmental Protection and Fishery Information etc. There are open laboratories respectively on “Genetic Breeding for Aquatic Animals and Aquaculture Biology” at the ministry level and “Inland Fishery Environment and Resources” at the level of the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences in addition to “MOA Monitoring Center on Fishery Resources and Ecological Environment for Lower Reaches of Yangtze River”; “MOA Clinic Test Center on New Fishery Medicine”; “National Center on Exotic Aqua-animal Introduction and Domestication and Genetic Breeding”, which has successfully achieved new species as Jian Carp; genetic-improved Tilapia and Prawn. The fishery journal “Scientific Fish Farming” is the largest circulation. The Center has continuously for the past 28 years undertaken national foreign-aid programs and in a position of authorizations for issuing Doctorate and Master degrees and is available with post-doctoral research center offered by “Wuxi Fishery College” jointly established with Nanjing Agricultural University.
