Tracing fish farm waste in the northern shrimp Pandalus borealis (Kroyer, 1838) using lipid biomarkers
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012-02-08)
A large amount of organic effluents are released annually from coastal fish farming locations primarily in the form of faeces that settle to the seabed, where they become a substantial food source for benthic communities. ...
Use of fatty acid profiles to monitor the escapehistory of farmed Atlantic salmon
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-18)
Farmed Atlantic salmon can escape from fish farms at various stages of their life, from juveniles to large mature fish. Escapees that enter rivers to spawn pose a threat to the genetic integrity of wild populations. Knowledge ...
Ocean Acidification Effects on Atlantic Cod Larval Survival and Recruitment to the Fished Population
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-23)
How fisheries will be impacted by climate change is far from understood. While some fish populations may be able to escape global warming via range shifts, they cannot escape ocean acidification (OA), an inevitable consequence ...
Evolution of age and length at maturation of Alaskan salmon under size-selective harvest
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013-11-12)
Spatial and temporal trends and variation in life-history traits, including age and length at maturation, can be influenced by environmental and anthropogenic processes, including size-selective exploitation. Spawning ...
Epithelial Label-Retaining Cells Are Absent during Tooth Cycling in Salmo salar and Polypterus senegalus
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-04-06)
The Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and African bichir (Polypterus senegalus) are both actinopterygian fish species that continuously replace their teeth without the involvement of a successional dental lamina. Instead, they ...
Thermal plasticity in farmed, wild and hybrid Atlantic salmon during early development: Has domestication caused divergence in low temperature tolerance?
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-02-16)
Salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) development times, body size and reproductive outputs follow universal models of temperature dependence
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-25)
Temperatures regulate metabolism of marine ectotherms and thereby influence development, reproduction, and, as a consequence, dispersal. Despite the importance of water temperatures in the epidemiology of marine diseases, ...
