• Flesh quality of Atlantic salmon smolts reared at different temperatures and photoperiods 

      Imsland, Albert; Roth, Bjørn; Døskeland, Inge; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Stefansson, Sigurd Olav; Handeland, Sigurd O; Mikalsen, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Possible interactive effects of temperature and photoperiod on flesh quality in Atlantic salmon post‐smolts were studied. Juvenile (initial mean weight 96.0 g ± 3.1 SEM ) Atlantic salmon were reared at six different ...
    • High fish density delays wound healing in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) 

      Sveen, Lene Rydal; Timmerhaus, Gerrit; Krasnov, Aleksei; Takle, Harald; Stefansson, Sigurd Olav; Handeland, Sigurd O; Ytteborg, Elisabeth (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-15)
      In this study, we look closer at how high fish densities influence wound repair mechanisms in post-smolt Atlantic salmon. The fish were wounded with a 5 mm skin punch biopsy needle and stocked at two different densities, ...
    • Performance and welfare of Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L. post-smolts in recirculating aquaculture systems: Importance of salinity and water velocity 

      Ytrestøyl, Trine; Takle, Harald Rune; Kolarevic, Jelena; Calabrese, Sara; Timmerhaus, Gerrit; Rosseland, Bjørn Olav; Teien, Hans-Christian; Nilsen, Tom Ole; Handeland, Sigurd O; Stefansson, Sigurd; Ebbesson, Lars; Terjesen, Bendik Fyhn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Producing a larger post‐smolt in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) could shorten the production time in sea cages and potentially reduce mortality. Knowledge of the biological requirements of post‐smolts in ...
