Veterinary improvements of trout RAS with focus on water quality and design (Recirk-vet) (39593)

Project Details


The purpose of project Recirc-Vet is to study and evaluate the implications of altered farming practice from flow through systems to recirculated aquaculture systems in DK. The project will evaluate the rearing conditions on four selected trout RAS and try to identify important factors affecting fish and system performance. The project will compare the farms and look into temporal patterns, based on traditional water quality parameters, new microbial assays and monitoring of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

The project consists of a network, which includes veterinarians, researchers and farm managers. They will try to link rearing conditions and fish diseases as well as fish welfare indicators.

The project is coordinated by Danish Aquaculture Association and is funded by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF) and the Danish Fisheries Agency.
