Biography Jens-Erik Dessen
Researcher within the department for nutrition and feed technology. Scientific responsible for large-scale research on salmonids within Nofima R&D sites in South, Mid and North of Norway. Working with industry projects related to dynamic dietary feeding adapted to seasonal variations during the sweater production phase for Rainbow trout and Atlantic salmon. Working areas: dietary protein-to-lipid ratio, implementation of new knowledge in large scale research, harvest quality and practical production biology.
Education: PhD within fish nutrition from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences at Dept. of Animal and Aquaculture Sciences and a Master in Science (M, Sc.) form the same University.
Previous working experience: Operating biologist at Lerøy Midt AS, at fish farming sites in Møre and Romsdal on the West Coast of Norway. Research Technician at the Center of fish research at he Norwegian University of Life Sciences.
Jens-Erik Dessen has 24 publications at Nofima:
1. January 2020 – 31. December 2022
In the BIO4ROBUST project, the focus is on the biology of farmed Atlantic salmon: The aim is a robust fish in a shifting aquaculture industry.
1. January 2017 – 31. December 2020
In BALANCE we will increase the basic understanding of how nutrients in the feed, in combination with genetic background, affect the occurrence of metabolically induced health and quality problems in Atlantic salmon.
