Areas of Specialization/Research
Dr. Green joined the faculty in 2008. Green’s lab is centered within the field of applied reproductive fish physiology and endocrinology, with a focus on freshwater and estuarine aquaculture species. Dr Green’s physiology research spans between both finfish and shellfish, with projects currently underway with: hybrid catfish, crawfish, tilapia, marine baitfish, and other prospective aquaculture species.

Current Responsibilities 
Conduct research in aquatic animal physiology; improve reproduction within warmwater species; teach undergraduate and graduate courses in aquaculture and fish physiology.
