The people all around the world mainly in Asia depend on seafood for food and economic gains. As an important part of the world's food systems, seafood pays towards future food security and healthy diets, due to its micronutrients and essential omega-3 fatty acids. These concerns are primarily due to human-generated pollution. Seafood faces alarming threats from global water contamination and the accumulation of heavy metals and other pollutants. However, our focus, therefore, shall be futuristic, addressing significant challenges affecting marine life and promoting resilience and sustainability in aquatic ecosystems and food safety.

Furthermore, our team has previously conducted an ecotoxicological study on heavy metals exposure in mud crabs (Scylla olivacea), using an integrative approach that depicts promise for assessing human health risks and toxicological effects of heavy metals. Mud crabs, economically valuable crustaceans are threatened by heavy metal contamination within their habitats.
In our study at the Setiu Wetland in Terengganu and the Kuala Sepetang site in Perak, Malaysia, our team investigated the ecotoxicological effects of heavy metals on mud crabs. Meanwhile, our comprehensive approach integrates proteomics, metabolomics and molecular docking techniques to reveal the molecular mechanisms underlying heavy metal pollution's impact on macromolecule metabolism in these species. This research also aims to assess potential human health impacts through consumption.
Based on our previous findings and understanding, we are seeking a collaborator in the UK who is interested in applying our approach to monitor the health of aquatic animals. Where, it is important to mention that the collaborator should be a permanent faculty member at any university in the UK. Additionally, any assistance from members of WildHub @Thirza Loffeld  for this project will be highly appreciated. 
If you are interested in discussing this collaboration further, please do not hesitate to reach out @Nurul Huda Abd Kadir . Thank you.
