Testing of novel net cleaning technologies for finfish aquaculture
To avoid the negative impacts caused by biofouling development, aquaculture nets around the world are periodically cleaned using high-pressure washers. Net cleaning is labour-intense and costly, can damage antifouling coatings on the nets, and pose contamination as well as fish health and welfare ri...

Assessment of novel antifouling coatings for salmon farming
Using acoustic telemetry to monitor the effects of crowding and delousing procedures on farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
The aim of this study was to demonstrate the feasibility of acoustic telemetry for monitoring fish during farm operations and gather knowledge about Atlantic salmon responses during crowding and delousing events in a commercial sea-cage. 21 fish were equipped with a novel transmitter tag type using ...
Effects of cnidarian biofouling on salmon gill health and development of amoebic gill disease
This study examines the potential implications of biofouling management on the development of an infectious disease in Norwegian farmed salmon. The hydroid Ectopleura larynx frequently colonises cage nets at high densities (thousands of colonies per m2) and is released into the water during regular ...
