Project Description

A new method for health status measurement in Atlantic salmon parr

A new non-invasive technology enabling measurement of fish health status. The method correlates to existing, but more time-consuming,  measurements in organs in Atlantic salmon parr.

The method takes advantage of specific responsive molecular markers. It is inexpensive, sensitive, selective, fast and permits high-throughput measurements. Given these features, the method may allow for reduced mortality through regular measurements of the fish health.
