The CtrlAQUA annual report for 2019 is now released, presenting an update on the latest development in research and innovation within closed containment aquaculture.
“What stands out in 2019, is that we implemented three new focus areas in our research plan. These areas are challenges that have evolved during the last years to be highly important for the industry to solve”, says Åsa Espmark, Centre Director of CtrlAQUA.
The three focus areas are the gas hydrogen sulphide (H2S), the disease nephrocalcinosis, and early sexual maturation. Not least, the annual report contains a sum up of the year, scientific highlights and more.

Centre for Research-Based Innovation in Closed-Containment Aquaculture
CtrlAQUA is a Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) that will lay the foundation for the development of closed-containment concepts of the future. With greater control of the production process, it will be possible to reduce problems associated with mortality and sea lice, and to reduce the production time for farmed salmon.
