We conduct research into how to optimise the production of salmon, cod and cleaner fish, and help widen the array of species used in aquaculture. 

A key element of our research is to promote good animal welfare in aquaculture. A robust fish copes with stress and handling and has normal organ development and rapid growth. It is highly resilient to bacteria, viruses and parasites. 

We are currently developing methods for monitoring, measuring and understanding the factors that enhance fish resilience using infection models, physiological testing and molecular biology.
