R&D on bacterial communities and microbiota in aquaculture – from lab to tank

Currently there is a significant research activity related to the understanding of bacterial communities and microbiota and potential applications for aquaculture.

This has gained relevance for salmonid aquaculture with the increased production of larger smolts/ postsmolts in closed containment systems using RAS and land-based production of harvest-size salmon.

In order to strengthen our knowledge in this field, FHF has funded several research projects with the objective to translate knowledge on bacterial communitites into tools and applications to improve biosecurity and control of fish health and welfare. This seminar’s objective is to gather the industry and R&D for an update on current knowledge and discussions regarding opportunities for implementations and applications for aquaculture and needs for further research.

NB: The webinar will be held in English
