NINAs Salmonid Fishes department is located in Trondheim, and focuses on both wild salmonids and aquaculture. Our research on wild salmonids embraces all life stages, both in freshwater and in the ocean, and includes basic and applied research within ecology, behaviour, genetics, life history and physiology.
Our core research within aquaculture addresses environmental effects of salmon farming related to salmon lice, escape of farmed fish and impacts on other nature-based industries, in addition to fish welfare. The department contributes significantly to national surveillance programs and is a central knowledge provider for environmental management. Sustainable use of areas and management of ecosystems and species in coastal waters are also central research areas.
