Marine ecosystem effects of eutrophication: Interactions between small pelagic fish and predators in low oxygen waters

The starting hypothesis for this proposal is that clupeid fish (Sprat) are more tolerant to low oxygen waters than their gadoid predators. Low oxygen waters (albeit above a critical level) thus represent a resource as a predatory refuge. This hypothesis w ill be addressed during winter in a fjord...

Nitric oxide regulation of development in fish: emphasis on the light-brain-pituitary axis and gill during salmon smoltification

Development of organs and tissues occur during critical periods throughout life. Specific systems develop at specific stages, e.g. early development (organogenesis) and smoltification (light-brain-pituitary axis (LBP) and gill). Our research has shown the LBP and gill undergo morphological, mole...
