Equipment failure or operational error are behind three out of four farmed salmon escapes. Two out of three escapes are due to holes in sea cage nets.
Scientists hope to gain a better understanding of the causes of oxygen depletion among fish populations with an EU-funded project called HYPOX.
Stress affects the congenital immune defence system. New doctoral research has revealed how stress can lower the immunity of salmon and increase its susceptibility to viral infection.
Work has begun on a new computer model which will enable communities and aquaculture industries to better assess environmental and human impacts, on estuarine and marine environments in Tasmania.
Waste from salmon production is currently being discharged into Norwegian coastal waters. Researchers say this is a resource – worth NOK 6 billion each year – that should be exploited for new biological production.
