Asian Carp in Western Kentucky Have Met Their Match

Gov. Steve Beshear announced Blue Shore Fishery LLC is locating a facility in Tri City located in Graves County, KY. Blue Shore, a manufacturer of healthy food products from Asian carp, is expected to create up to 66 new jobs and invest $1.3 million into the project. "We welcome Blue Shore Fishery to the Commonwealth," said Gov. Beshear. "Not only will the company be creating 66 jobs and investing $1.3 million, but also it will be adding to our overall exports. Exporting is big business, with Kentucky setting an all-time record last year with $27.5 billion in exports of Kentucky products and services."

Kristy Allen Visits the University of Montevallo

Kristy Allen, a Kentucky State Graduate Student, travelled to her undergraduate alma mater, the University of Montevallo, in Alabama to speak to students about her thesis research. On February 5, 2015, she presented to Dr. Jill Wilcknick's vertebrate zoology class of 25 students. Kristy gave a brief overview of what graduate research entails and different examples of research being conducted at Kentucky State University. She covered the details of her thesis research that will start in March 2015. Her thesis research will focus on optimizing the use of algal meal (Schizochytrium sp.) as a fish oil replacement in practical diets for Pacific white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei). The students at the University of Montevallo were informed of the different objectives and research processes Kristy will be studying and performing for her research.
