Database for Coastal Fish – KUL

The KUL database contains catch data from the coastal fishery. In its current form, KUL has been in operation since 2006. Individual fish data are also stored in KUL. This can be gender distribution

Cod's response to climate change

Cod is a keystone species in marine ecosystems. It shapes the conditions for a large number of other species in the sea and is also of great importance both economically and culturally. However, the

Population genetics of coastal fish

Biological diversity is not only a matter of species diversity. Genetic diversity within species is equally important. Genetic patterns can be analyzed and described using modern DNA techniques, and

Feasibility and potential for farming and conditioning of wild fish fed with by-catches in Sweden

Today farming or conditioning of wild-caught fish is low in Sweden and Europe in general. There are however a number of advantages in farming of wild fish compared to wild catch, such as a better

Sustainable fishery

We want future generations to be able to fish for sustainable stocks of seafood. We develop methods, models and tools for evaluating the effects of various management measures. We develop selective
