Intensive fish farming of fin-fish in open net-pens results in the release of organic and inorganic effluents like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus to the environment. Accumulation of these effluents into the marine system can negatively impact the ecosystem by contributing to eutrophication of pelagic systems, fertilisation of benthic macrophytes in the euphotic zone, and organic enrichment of deeper benthic systems.
In our research group we investigate immun responses agains viral disease and how immuno-stimulants can be used to enhance the effect of vaccines against disease in finfish aquaculture
