Biography Celeste Jacq
I am interested in the application of molecular tools for assessing conservation and management issues in fisheries and aquaculture. Such issues include interactions between farmed and wild populations, anthropogenic impacts on wild populations, and the evolutionary effects of long-term selective breeding. I am particularly enthusiastic about the use of molecular markers to identify genetic stocks and population mixing; and to provide an assessment of the genetic diversity and fitness of populations for improved management practices, both in the wild and aquaculture programmes. In addition, I am interested in using genomic technology in novel ways, such as for the development of diagnostic genetic markers for traceabillity purposes

1. January 2017 – 31. December 2019
The primary objective of FutureFish is to improve the robustness of salmon and lumpfish under a changing climate scenario through investigating the genetics of robustness in salmon to thermal stress and sea-lice and improving the sea-lice eating ability of lumpfish.

The successful cooperation in QuantEscape between four leading research institutions that study interactions between escaped farmed and wild Atlantic Salmon led to a second project, QuantEscape2. The project will provide knowledge that can improve the management of wild and farmed salmon and increase the sustainability of industries that depend on salmon.
