Characteristic current flow through a stocked conical sea-cage with permeable lice shielding skirt
Nye erfaringer og kunnskap fra forskning på strøm i havbruksanlegg
Turbulence and flow field alterations inside a fish sea cage and its wake
Loads and response on flexible conical and cylindrical fish cages: A numerical and experimental study based on full-scale values
This paper presents drag forces from uniform water current on two flexible net cage designs, commonly used in Norwegian fish farming, obtained through model-scale testing and numerical simulations. The primary focus is on the comparison between model tests and numerical simulations and performance...
How caged salmon respond to waves depends on time of day and currents
Multiscale modelling of cage effects on the transport of effluents from open aquaculture systems
Impacts of fish farm structures with biomass on water currents: A case study from Frøya
Impacts of aquaculture fish cages and their biomass on the local water current field is investigated with extensive, full scale field measurements. This is important for the fish welfare as well as for waste transport from open fish cages. The relationships between the current flow rate at various...
EVALUATION OF PLASTIC SKIRT USED AS MANAGEMENT MEASURE AGAINST SEA-LICE INFECTION IN NORWEGIAN ATLANTIC SALMON CAGES
Dissolved oxygen variability in a commercial sea-cage exposes farmed Atlantic salmon to growth limiting conditions
Understanding dissolved O2 flux in marine cages, and how individual fish respond to and experience such variation, is critical to optimizing growth and production performance of farmed salmon. We used a high resolution environmental monitoring system to create a 3-dimensional map of a commercial...
