Climate change - consequences for the aquaculture industry

Spend some time with us during the Aqua Nor trade show and learn more about how climate change can impact the aqua culture industry.

Sted: Høgskoleringen 9, Trondheim (NINA-building)
Når: 15.08.2013 ,15:30 - 18:00

The Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) is pleased to invite you to the seminar "Climate change - consequences for the aquaculture industry", followed by an open house with wine and tapas in the new NIVA offices.

This year we have decided to focus on short and long term effects of climate change and how this will affect the aquaculture industry both in Norway and globally. Key topics include climate change and changes in the marine environment, changes that affect the freshwater quality, altered infection pressure, and special focus on how the effects can be mitigated.

For speakers we have, among others, senior researcher Richard Bellerby from NIVA who has coordinated AMAP’s (Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Programme) work on ocean acidification. From NIFES (National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research) Ernst Morten Hevrøy will talk about their work on how high seawater temperatures affect the appetite and growth in Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout.
