2020: Sal. Coli – AGD-disease in Atlantic salmon & Aquaculture (completed)

The biological and environmental concerns that the aquaculture industry faces require innovation in both detection and treatment of disease in fish. Among these is amoebic gill disease caused by Paramoeba perurans (P. perurans) affecting Atlantic salmon. Our project aims to create an automatic detection system. We also aim to use genetically modified Escherichia coli to produce salinomycin, an antiparasitic compound.
