Biography Ragnhild Aven Svalheim
In my job as a researcher I am interested in the wellbeing of fish and crustaceans before they become dinner. In my PhD entitled «Stress responses influencing filet fillet quality in trawled cod and haddock”, I studied who different types of stress affect the fillet quality of cod and haddock. Currently, I am working with fish welfare in fisheries and how different fishing gears affects the welfare and stress levels of cod. I am also involved in a project about coexistence in coastal areas and I am pursuing a postdoc in humane killing of crustaceans.

During this project, we will be identifying how the use of various types of commercial fishing gear affect the physiology and mortality of cod and thus their welfare and quality. We will also be investigating the links between ethical fishing, quality and price.
1. January 2019 – 31. January 2021
During this project, the researchers shall gather new, multidisciplinary knowledge about how the marine industries can coexist in a good way along the coast, and develop new methodologies and models for such coexistence.
1. April 2011 – 30. March 2019
The goal of the centre was a paradigm shift within fisheries technology.
