Consumer acceptance and risk perception of insect-based aquafeed

Insects are increasingly considered as sustainable source of protein as fish feed, but what are the consumers' attitudes towards fish fed insects instead of conventional protein sources? Insect-based

Germ-free and germ-associated experimental set-ups for rainbow trout larvae for nutraceuticals-gut microbiota interaction studies and beyond (TroLar)

The aim of this project is to develop a standardized germ-free and germ-associated rainbow trout larval model systems as a means to understand the interplay among novel nutraceuticals, defense system

Mitigation of interaction effects between farmed and wild fish in Sweden

A not foreseen effect of the blockage of fish migrating routes by hydropower dams was the formation of environments with different biosecurity, i.e. the infectious diseases present in the inland zone

Fish wastes - origins, forms and functions as fertilizers in agricultural systems

In a future, circular economy, it is desirable that mineral nutrients from fish wastes are utilized for plant production in agriculture and horticulture. Challenges related to the closing of the loop

Generating a reference genome assembly for Arctic charr using long-read sequencing

The current proposal project aims to boost the Swedish Arctic charr breeding program through the construction of a reference genome assembly. Modern aquaculture breeding programs rely on DNA

Biostimulants in aqua wastes

Fish wastes contain the essential mineral nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus) and natural biostimulants (BS) that are required for plant growth. However, its value as organic fertilizers (e.g. BS)

Welfare, ethics and feeding for farming and conditioning of wild fish

Grow-out or conditioning of wild-caught fish in aquaculture can increase profitability of inshore fisheries, which currently suffer economic problems, with little negative side-effects on stock

LIVEFLY2fish -whole live black soldier fly in rainbow trout diets

In 2017, EU approved use of insects in fish feed. Wild salmonids and other fish naturally feed on insects throughout their lives. Feeding farmed fish with live insects could be environmentally

Enhancing the national breeding programs of Arctic charr and rainbow trout in Sweden with genotyping by sequencing

Arctic charr and rainbow trout are the two most important farmed species for Swedish Aquaculture and selective breeding is a key factor for the aquaculture production of these species. This project

Farming of wild-caught perch with an insect-based feed

Farming (grow-out) of undersized perch that are too small for human consumption has been identified as an option to increase resource use and income in small-scale coastal fisheries as these perch is

Germ-free Artemia test system, an in vivo toolbox for aquaculture and cross-disciplinary research

In a germ-free animal, nutritional (and other) processes can be studied without interference from the microorganisms commonly inhabiting the gut in a conventional environment. The extent to which

Screening for microbial biostimulants in aquaculture

Aquaponics, integrated systems for production of fish and plants, display an alternative for production of animal protein and health-promoting vegetables. Scaling up aquaponic systems for primary
