Solving bottlenecks in triploid Atlantic salmon production. Temperature, hypoxia and dietary effects on performance, cataracts and metabolism
(The University of Bergen, 2016-12-14)
In salmon aquaculture, fish occasionally escape from net pens. These domesticated salmon are genetically maladapted for living in natural environments however they still manage to interbreed with wild fish, resulting in ...
Nutritional and environmental impacts on skin and mucus condition in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.)
(The University of Bergen, 2015-10-09)
The skin and associated mucus layer of Atlantic salmon constitutes its first line of defence against the aqueous environment. Through intensive farming, a range of stressors including both mechanical and environmental ...
Assessment of growth performance and liver lipid accumulation in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) fed an insect-based diet
(The University of Bergen, 2018-06-26)
Increase in price and reduced availability of fish meal (FM) has caused the aquaculture industry to look at alternative sources for nutrients for feed production. Vegetable protein sources can replace a substantial part ...
The impact of micro-mineral sources and their availability on hepatic lipid metabolism in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
(The University of Bergen, 2018-06-27)
The increased use of plant-based ingredients in aquafeeds for Atlantic salmon has led to an increase in phytate, an antinutrient binding micro minerals and reducing their bioavailability. It has been suggested that the ...
In vitro bacterial and viral response in head kidney leukocytes of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) fed dietary insects meal.
(The University of Bergen, 2018-06-07)
With the fast growth of today’s aquaculture industry, the demand for aqua-feeds is expanding dramatically. Insects, which are part of the natural diet of salmonids, could represent a sustainable ingredient for aquaculture ...
Effect of tryptophan enriched diets on aggression in hierarchical groups of juvenile Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
(The University of Bergen, 2010-07-01)
Aggression in fish hierarchies often leads to one dominant individual monopolizing resources (food/shelter), thus increasing their fitness. Meanwhile individuals in subordinate ranks, endure high stressful conditions, ...
