Genomic technology has been applied to boost the resistance of whiteleg shrimp to one of the most serious diseases affecting global shrimp producers - White Spot Syndrome Virus. By using genomic selection, we have demonstrated that we can rapidly increase the level of disease resistance in whiteleg shrimp.

Scientists have determined that salmon post-smolts tolerate similar level of ozone in brackish water as they do in freshwater.
In H2Salar the scientists aim to create knowledge and advance our understanding of the risks and impacts of H2S to the physiology of Atlantic salmon in RAS.

Stress slows wound healing in fish, according to doctoral work done by Lene Sveen at Nofima. Sveen defends her thesis 30 November 2018 at University of Bergen.
We are happy to announce that the 1st International Symposium on Mucosal Health in Aquaculture (MHA2019) will take place in Oslo, Norway from 11 to 13 September 2019. MHA2019 will be the first of its kind and will initiate a unique global network dedicated to advance mucosal health research in aquaculture.
This project will explore an alternative strategy to treat amoebic gill disease (AGD), a serious problem in Atlantic salmon aquaculture.
Nofima cordially invites aquaculture industry to six short and newsworthy presentations. Scientists will present new research findings about the growth and health of salmon and associated challenges of closed systems. You will get an expert opinion on the potential of this new production form from the knowledge hub of CtrlAQUA.
