The SALMODIS-project addresses decisions on sustainable disease control strategies in salmon farming. Decision makers in government and industry need knowledge and methods to evaluate the constraints and cost-effectiveness of control strategies, interventions, and regulations, with regard to their combined effects on economic, environmental, and social dimensions.

 Research questions

  • What are the constraints and options for sustainable disease control in salmon farming?
  • Which disease control strategies are the most cost-effective in the short- and long-term, with regard to their impacts on disease epidemiology, economics, environment and social sustainability?
  • To what extent can integrated models of disease control be leveraged to support both short- and long-term sustainable decision making for the aquaculture sector based on production, economic, environmental, and social dimensions to enhance sustainability in the sector?
