Sherly Tomy. Ms. Dr
Designation : Principal Scientist
Discipline : Animal / Fish Genetics And Breeding
Division : Nutrition, Genetics and Biotechnology Division
Specialization : Molecular Endocrinology
Research areas:
  • Molecular Endocrinology regulating reproduction of crustacean and finfish.
  • Development of strategies to induce maturation of captive stocks.
Brief profile:

After taking masters in Fish & Fishery Science (Mariculture) in 1997, Ph.D. in Fish & Fishery Science in 2002 and a post-doctoral experience in Taiwan (2004 to 2009), I have been working in CIBA since September 20009 on molecular endocrinology of penaeid shrimps and finfish. I have worked on the molecular reproductive endocrinology of finfish and crustacean. I have contributed to the understanding of the molecular pathway regulation vitellogenesis and development of induce maturation protocols alternative to eyestalk ablation in penaeid shrimps. I have interest in understanding the neuroendocrine pathways regulating reproduction and its application to fish culture.

Current Research Projects (3 important ones):

NoTitle Funded By
1 Molecular mechanisms of Gonad-Inhibiting Hormone action on the control of egg maturation in the penaeid shrimp, Penaeus monodonDBT
2Biotechnological interventions and application of bioinformatic tools for improvement of brackishwater fish and shellfishInstitute

Director's Message...
Present day Indian shrimp farming almost entirely depends on aquaculture of exotic white shrimp, Penaeus vannamei .
Sole dependence on a single species cast doubt about the sustainability of Indian shrimp farming.
