About this research group
The Integrative Fish Biology group at Uni Environment develops fundamental biological knowledge on how environment influences fish development, growth, reproduction, smolt quality, and disease.
Our group specializes on the integration of neuroscience, endocrinology, physiology, behavior and disease in order to advance local, national and international objectives to identify and resolve environmental issues faced by aquaculture and restoration and wild fish populations.
Sustainable aquaculture is a central theme in our research.
We believe the identification of methods to increase aquaculture production while simultaneously protecting and advancing restoration of wild populations will benefit society as a whole.
The EU, the Norwegian Research Council, the aquaculture industry and regional authorities presently fund our research.
