Leo Nankervis PhD, BSc specializes in the application of physiology to achieve commercially applicable feed developments. Having worked for over a decade in commercial R&D, Dr Nankervis has delivered world-leading research developments in areas including fish meal reduction for salmonids and marine fish, transfer feeds, high performance feeds for fish and prawns, effluent reduction and feeds for recirculation systems. Having lead a large commercial research team in Norway with global networks, Dr Nankervis has comprehensive experience across nutrition, feed production and implementation in the aquafeeds sector. His commercial experience extends beyond research, into quality, formulation and sustainability in the aquaculture sector.

Research interests include using physiology to solve commercially relevant production bottlenecks, raw materials for aquafeeds, nutrient requirements, digestive processes in aquatic organisms, taste and palatability.
