Research Interests

  • Ornamental Aquaculture

Dr. Matt DiMaggio joined SFRC in 2014 as an assistant professor at the University of Florida's Tropical Aquaculture Laboratory in Ruskin.  His research program focuses on the culture of ornamental fish species in Florida, and he works closely with the local industry to identify opportunities for optimization and innovation.  Dr. DiMaggio has a broad foundation in the field of aquaculture, having conducted research with both marine and freshwater species produced for food, bait, and ornamental purposes.  His previous investigations have focused on a myriad of applied culture aspects including live feed production, larval rearing, and induced spawning.  Additionally, elucidation of basic physiological responses within a species can provide an opportunity for intervention or manipulation to achieve desired outcomes in a production setting.  Consequently, reproductive endocrinology, stress physiology, and osmoregulation are areas of particular interest due to their importance for the successful propagation of fishes in captivity.
