The interaction between water currents and salmon swimming behaviour in sea cages
(Public Library of Science, 2014-05-15)
Positioning of sea cages at sites with high water current velocities expose the fish to a largely unknown environmental challenge. In this study we observed the swimming behaviour of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) at a ...
The rise and fall of forests

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 ...
Experimental parameterisation of principal physics in buoyancy variations of marine teleost eggs
(Public Library of Science, 2014-08-14)
It is generally accepted that the high buoyancy of pelagic marine eggs is due to substantial influx of water across the cell membrane just before ovulation. Here we further develop the theoretical basis by applying laboratory ...
What is natural? The importance of a long-term perspective in biodiversity conservation and management
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2006)
Ecosystems change in response to factors such as climate variability, invasions, and wildfires. Most records used to assess such change are based on short-term ecological data or satellite imagery spanning only a few ...
Pelagic microbial food web organization. Extending the theory for structure and diversity generating mechanisms based on life strategy trade-offs
(The University of Bergen, 2014-04-04)
Salamonid alphavirus (SAV) - genetic characterisation of a new subtype, SAV3, and implementation of a novel diagnostic method
(The University of Bergen, 2006-12-13)
The oxygen requirement of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) in the on-growing phase in sea cages
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-30)
Atlantic salmon aquaculture is a successful and growing industry, with a global production of more than 1.4 million tonnes in 2010. In the on-growing phase, Atlantic salmon are normally kept in sea cages, where both the ...
The emotion system promotes diversity and evolvability
(Royal Society Publishing, 2014-08-06)
Studies on the relationship between the optimal phenotype and its environment have had limited focus on genotype-to-phenotype pathways and their evolutionary consequences. Here, we study how multi-layered trait architecture ...
