DOCUMENT TEXT

Short description  The performance of farmed fish during rearing, and hence the
profitability of the industry, can be highly dependent on the general
well-being of fish. In sub-optimal conditions, fish can be subject to
stress that affects their behaviour and feeding with adverse consequences
for growth and health. This raises the need for guidelines for avoiding
stress in fish based on a standardised system that identifies and quantifies
significant causes of stress.FASTFISH will develop new operational indicators for
on-farm assessment and documentation of stress levels and fish welfare in Atlantic
salmon (Salmo salar) and European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) farms.
Abstract (focusing on the key recommendations)  FASTFISH will develop new operational indicators for
on-farm assessment and documentation of stress levels and
fish welfare in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and European
sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) farms. The project’s scientific
and technical objectives are to:
Identify non-invasive indicators to monitor and quantify
stress levels
Use immunological and physiological methods to
validat ...
