  7. Short freshwater treatments against gill disease

    Freshwater bathing is the go to treatment for amoebic gill disease (AGD) in many farmed fish species. Treatments are typically 2-4 hours long and kill the amoeba. This restricts how and when treatments can be delivered. Dr …

  10. Bigger is not always better: how cage size and depth influence dissolved oxygen in salmon farming

    Bigger cages potentially allow for increased Atlantic salmon production and higher profitability, but only if water quality remains good. As cage size increases water exchange decreases, …
