HAVBRUKS-Havbruk - en næring i vekst

Motivational states and coping ability as operational welfare indicators in farmed fish

To improve welfare of farmed fish there is a need to develop objective indicators that can be used to assess, manage and document welfare. The high number of individuals in aquaculture production units puts constraints on which indicators that are likely to be operational in the industry. Behavio...

Production of all-female cod as a means to circumvent problems with early puberty in males: Studies on sex determination and differentiation

Early puberty is a major problem in cod farming both due to negative impact on production performance in on-growth farms, and due to risk of negative genetic impact on wild stocks following spawning in sea cages or after escape. Use of all-female stocks c an mitigate some of these problems. Howev...
