The Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC)’s partnership in a newly established research lab for fish nutrition, has earned its director, Professor Trond Storebakken, special recognition from
The Joint Marine Fish Nutrition Laboratory is located in Shenjiamen in the
APC has helped to establish a network between Chinese and Norwegian scientists, focusing on the sustainable utilization of feed resources for the fish farming industry.
The laboratory has the capacity to perform four extensive nutritional experiments simultaneously. Comparative research is undertaken to compare research on salmon in cold water in
“Consider, for example, feed enzymes, on which we do lots of work. The effect of these enzymes varies, depending on the water temperature. Thus, different strategies may be needed when improving the nutritional quality of ingredients to be used in feed for cold and warm-water species. The laboratory improves the scientists’ ability to understand protein utilization and the demands to raw material quality when developing feed for fish species living under different environmental conditions”, Storebakken said.
The vision of APC’s research is to contribute to the sustainable utilization of protein resources in the national and international fish farming industries. Cooperation with
