Prevalence and consequences of hydrogen sulphide in land-based Atlantic salmon production (H2Salar) (39773)

Project Details


H2Salar aims to create knowledge and advance our understanding of the risks and impacts of H2S to the physiology of Atlantic salmon in RAS.

Instead of immediately developing solutions to combat the threat, the lack of fundamental knowledge prompts this initiative to adapt a process-based, research-driven approach that will identify the risks both under laboratory and field-based trials; elucidate underlying mechanisms involved in H2S-salmon interaction from molecular to organismal level; and provide a holistic documentation of the impacts to the different physiological systems that are key for fish health, welfare and robustness.

It is expected that the results will be valuable across different sectors of the aquaculture industry that are affected by this issue and the challenges of land-based salmon production in general.
