The main aim of the project is the developing of sustainable strategies for improving the health, welfare and quality of cultured rainbow trout by implementing three interrelated approaches: management, immune prophylactics, and selective breeding. The management approach determines how increased water current at given rearing densities and water temperatures can reduce the stress of trout. The immune prophylactic approach determines the relationship between immune response profiles and induction of protective immunity at different water temperatures and hereby establishing efficient strategies for use of vaccination and feed stimulants in prevention of diseases. The selective breeding approach determines how physiological and immunological traits can improve the genetically basis for resistance of trout to stress and disease.

The project is coordinated by DTU Aqua.
