Size Dependent Male Reproductive Tactic in the Two-Spotted Goby (Gobiusculus flavescens)
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-07)
Male investment in testes and sperm duct gland in the polygamous nest breeding two-spotted goby Gobiusculus flavescens (Fabricius) was investigated in relation to time in reproductive season and individual physical parameters. ...
Characteristics of the Norwegian Coastal Current during years with high recruitment of Norwegian spring spawning herring (Clupea harengus L.)
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-12-04)
Norwegian Spring Spawning herring (NSSH) Clupea harengus L. spawn on coastal banks along the west coast of Norway. The larvae are generally transported northward in the Norwegian Coastal Current (NCC) with many individuals ...
Modelling benthic habitats and biotopes off the coast of Norway to support spatial management.
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-06-25)
Habitat conservation, and hence conservation of biodiversity hinges on knowledge of the spatial distribution of habitats, not least those that are particularly valuable or vulnerable. In offshore Norway, benthic habitats ...
Characterization of a novel RXR receptor in the salmon louse (Lepeophtheirus salmonis, Copepoda) regulating growth and female reproduction
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-02-14)
Nuclear receptors have crucial roles in all metazoan animals as regulators of gene transcription. A wide range of studies have elucidated molecular and biological significance of nuclear receptors but there are still a ...
Effects of large-scale releases on the genetic integrity of red sea bream (Pagrus major, Temminck et Schlegel)
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-20)
Large-scale hatchery releases are carried out for many marine fish species worldwide; nevertheless, the long-term effects of this practice on the genetic structure of natural populations remains unclear. The lack of knowledge ...
Effect of temperature on the metabolism, behaviourand oxygen requirements of Sparus aurata
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-09-03)
We investigated the effect of temperature on the limiting oxygen saturation (LOS) of gilthead sea bream Sparus aurata. This threshold was defined as the % O2 saturation where fish no longer upheld their routine metabolic ...
Skillful prediction of Barents Sea ice cover
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-08)
A main concern of present climate change is the Arctic sea ice cover. In wintertime, its observed variability is largely carried by the Barents Sea. Here we propose and evaluate a simple quantitative and prognostic framework ...
Transcriptome sequencing of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) notochord prior to development of the vertebrae provides clues to regulation of positional fate, chordoblast lineage and mineralisation
(Journal article; Peer reviewed; Peer reviewed, 2014)
Potential disease interaction reinforced: double-virusinfected escaped farmed Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., recaptured in a nearby river
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-01-27)
The role of escaped farmed salmon in spreading infectious agents from aquaculture to wild salmonid populations is largely unknown. This is a case study of potential disease interaction between escaped farmed and wild fish ...
Atlantic salmon Salmo salar instantaneously follow vertical light movements in sea cages
(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
Atlantic salmon in marine farming environments are exposed to potentially detrimental conditions through space and time. For instance, the vertical distribution of parasitic salmon lice larvae shifts in response to changing ...
