Effects of environmental conditions on culturing scallop spat (Pecten maximus)
(The University of Bergen, 2005-09-22)
The great scallop, Pecten maximus, is a valuable bivalve species attractive for human consumption. Scallop aquaculture is increasing, but availability of spat is a bottleneck to the development of a viable culture industry ...
Modeling early life history of cod
(The University of Bergen, 2007-03-02)
Newly hatched Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) larvae face an uncertain future when they first enter their marine pelagic habitat. Prior to complete yolk absorption, the larvae will have to find food. This process includes ...
Pelagic microbial food web organization. Extending the theory for structure and diversity generating mechanisms based on life strategy trade-offs

The effect of pot design on behaviour and catch efficiency of gadoids
(The University of Bergen, 2015-05-29)
The behavioural response of fish to pots is poorly understood but is a vital component of the fish capture process. Here, the behaviour of gadoids prior to and after capture in different baited fish pot designs was observed ...
Mesozooplankton distribution in Svalbard waters. Calanus spp. and its relationship to hydrographic variability
(The University of Bergen, 2008-02-06)
This thesis investigates mesozooplankton abundance, composition and distribution in Svalbard waters in relation to hydrography. Sampling was carried out in the archipelago of Svalbard mainly during summer and autumn ...
Identification and molecular characterization of two acetylcholinesterases from the salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis
Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is an important enzyme in cholinergic synapses. Most arthropods have two genes (ace1 and ace2), but only one encodes the predominant synaptic AChE, the main target for organophosphates. Resistance ...
Phagocytosis and Respiratory Burst Activity in Lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus L.) Leucocytes Analysed by Flow Cytometry
(Public Library of Science, 2012-10-24)
In the present study, we have isolated leucocytes from peripheral blood, head kidney and spleen from lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus L.), and performed functional studies like phagocytosis and respiratory burst, as well as ...
Cloning, tissue and ontogenetic expression of the taurine transporter in the flatfish Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis)
Flatfish species seem to require dietary taurine for normal growth and development. Although dietary taurine supplementation has been recommended for flatfish, little is known about the mechanisms of taurine absorption in ...
