Research interests

Marine ecology and aquaculture

The lab works on many topics within sustainable aquaculture and fisheries, and more broadly in aquatic and terrestrial ecology. Within aquaculture, we try to solve the environmental and animal welfare problems aquaculture creates by working both inside and outside aquaculture systems.

  • Environmental impacts
  • Animal behaviour
  • Host-parasite interactions
  • Aquaculture technology

Research projects

  • Ecological effects of aquaculture in marine ecosystems (travel to Norway for research)
  • Marine ecosystem rehabilitation using aquaculture techniques and technologies
  • Parasite control and prevention in aquaculture (travel to Norway for research)
