State-wide extension responsibilities for all commercial aquaculture as well as recreational and ornamental residential pond management.
Quantitative genetics, alternative species commercialization, practical genetic evaluation through field trials. After earning his PhD from LSU, Dr. Lutz planned, designed and subsequently supervised the construction, outfitting and operation of the largest commercial aquaculture facility in the state. To date he has authored over 160 scientific, extension and popular publications
