Developing feeds that optimise fish health and nutrition, and ingredients that promote a circular economy.
Simulating in vitro Atlantic salmon intestinal microbiome system
A go-to diagnostic system for testing new feeds prior to in vivo trials, providing deeper insight and driving down the costs of bringing new products to market.
Clinical nutrition and the treatment of Atlantic salmon gill diseases (NAGD)
The development of diagnostic tools for the pathophysiological responses to gill disease in Atlantic salmon.
Exploring the use of avian proteins in salmon feeds
Greater adoption of avian proteins; less reliance on imported feed products; sustainable use of locally available protein products; and a reduced carbon footprint.
Testing of novel health ingredients
Securing the viability of strategies that bolster mucosal robustness and mitigate stress-related immunosuppression by preserving the stock robustness and in turn reducing the risk of spiralling interventions due to increased susceptibility to infections.
