New research shows that land-based recirculation facilities for salmon farming in Norway and in North America are disinfected in different ways. An overall picture of current practice may provide knowledge that increases safety in a rapidly growing industry.
We have known for a long time that salmon skin is important to sustain a healthy and robust fish. We have therefore developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool that can help us to evaluate all the details in Atlantic salmon skin.
Fish skin is a living organ that protects the fish against mechanical trauma as well as infections in a constantly changing and challenging environment. Although a lot is known about the biology of fish skin, there is still a lot to be discovered and understood. One thing we can say for certain, is that intact skin is important for the health and welfare of the fish.
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.
