Dr Amaya Albalat background is in fish and crustacean physiology. Her research interests are focussed in three main areas: 1) The study of the effects of fishing and aquaculture practices on the physiology of fish and crustaceans. 2) The study of new strategies and processing methods to ensure fish and crustacean quality is maintained throughout the food chain and that food security is sustained. 3) To find biomarkers for the early detection of disease and physiological stress using proteomic profiling.
