Editor in Chief of Agricultural Science and Technology
My name is Ivaylo Sirakov and I am professor at the Trakia University in Stara Zagora where I teach students in the department of "Fish farming and aquaculture". I started my career with a Master degree in ecology and environment protection. At that time I became interested in different fish species and their breeding. Thus, in 2004 I enrolled in doctoral studies and specialized in one of the leading cultured species in Bulgaria - the trouts. The studies included extremely advanced technologies such as cultivation in nets (cages) and recirculation systems. The latter was innovation for our country at that time.
