Biography Mette Serine W Breiland
When I started in Nofima I worked mainly with cod and Genetic analysis in the National cod breeding program in Tromsø. Since that time Nofima has established a breedingpopulation and breeding program for cod, and I am still Connected to this Group in Nofima. Today I work in the Fish Health Group in Nofima, Tromsø. One main area is development and establishment of bacterial Challenge models for salmon and lumpfish mainly. This for future disease control and vaccine development for these species. I also work with salmon lice. We have a Challenge model for salmon lice and good facilities at the Aquaculture Research Station in Tromsø. Here we produce lice and can run different trials using this model, and this also includes BioAssay studies. I coordinate bacterial trials and salmon lice trials run at the Station.

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.
