OC2017 A-121 - Effects of produced water on pelagic marine organisms - Focus on the copepod Calanus finmarchicus
The main aim of this project was to provide a basis for assessing the potential health effects of produced water (PW) on the marine pelagic zooplankton Calanus finmarchicus in the field. This report describes three experiments assessing the impact of reconstituted PW extracts on copepod PAH body res...
Exposure to crude oil micro-droplets causes reduced food uptake in copepods associated with alteration in their metabolic profiles
Modelling the dynamics of growth, development and lipid storage in the marine copepod Calanus finmarchicus
2017:00007 A - SubSea Dispersant lnjection (SSDI)- a "state of the art" and the need for further documentations
The aim of this pre-project has been to give a "State-of the art" and describe the R&D challenges and documentation needed in order to perform robust NEBA (Net Environmental Benefit Analysis) where SubSea Dispersant Injection (SSDI) is included as an acceptable countermeasure option. In spill sc...
Oil droplet fouling and differential toxicokinetics of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in embryos of Atlantic haddock and cod
The impact of crude oil pollution on early life stages (ELS) of fish, including larvae and embryos, has received considerable attention in recent years. Of the organic components present in crude oil, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are considered the main class of compounds responsible for ...
Automatic determination of heart rates from microscopy videos of early life stages of fish
Acute and physical effects of water-based drilling mud in the marine copepod Calanus finmarchicus
Potential impacts of mine tailing plumes on pelagic filter-feeders
Deposition of mine tailings in fjords along the Norwegian coast is known to have ecological implications for benthic fauna, but little information is available on the potential impacts on pelagic organisms. Depending on local hydrology, deposition of tailings can result in plumes where the particle ...
Crude oil exposures reveal roles for intracellular calcium cycling in haddock craniofacial and cardiac development
Recent studies have shown that crude oil exposure affects cardiac development in fish by disrupting excitation-contraction (EC) coupling. We previously found that eggs of Atlantic haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) bind dispersed oil droplets, potentially leading to more profound toxic effects from ...
