Project meeting and a field trip to the salmon hatchery

Last week we visited our Project Partners, VESO Vikan, laboratories near Namsos. It was a very interesting project meeting and latest results discussion, but above all, it was an amazing experience to learn about Atlantic salmon, its aquaculture techniques, physiology, and behaviour, and also see how the fish is used as in vivo model for the study of the efficiency of new drug candidates. Gathered knowledge will help us to plan future trials of enzybiotics’ efficiency, which will be carried out in salmon aquaculture, fully exploring in vivo model functionalities and limitations.
