The Challenges of Producing Large S1 Smolt in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS)
Salmon farming companies have been switching their focus to the production of much larger smolt as a strategy for reducing netpen grow-out time and for reducing problems with sealice. Since recirculating aquaculture systems, with their warmer year round...
The Role of Nutrition in Gut Health
Nutrition along with environment and host physiology comprise the three main factors for strong gut performance. This second article in our gut health series reveals how nutrition can influence gut health, writes Otavio Serino Castro, Technical Sales...
