Copepods enhance nutritional status, growth and development in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) larvae – can we identify the underlying factors? (PeerJ, 2015-05-19)The current commercial production protocols for Atlantic cod depend on enriched rotifers and Artemia during first-feeding, but development and growth remain inferior to fish fed natural zooplankton. Two experiments were ...Journal article
Earlier hatching and slower growth: a key to survival in the early life history of Norwegian spring spawning herring (Inter-Research, 2018-10-02)Faster growth in fish larvae is often associated with enhanced survival, and here we investigated whether surviving juvenile Norwegian spring spawning herring Clupea harengus L. generally come from a pool of fast-growing ...Journal article
(Elsevier, 2017-02)In studies of marine larvae, it is common to use days post-hatch as a developmental reference point. We show that age is a poor measure of morphological and physiological development in Atlantic cod. Therefore, we propose ...Journal article
