Sustainable management of interactions between aquaculture and wild salmonid fish
This multidisciplinary project addresses questions relating to (i) the declines in wild salmonid populations in NW Europe, (ii) aspects of the migratory behaviour and physiological responses of juvenile salmonids, as they adapt to seawater and as they r
Using state of the art cell biological and physiological techniques and socio-economic modelling, recommendations on target lice burdens to allow the sustainable development of both industries will be achievable. For wild fishery managers, recommended l
