Project description

The overall aim of the project is to develop new product concepts for application in aquaculture to (1) improve the robustness of the aquatic organism and/or (2) to steer the aquatic microbial activity in the environment. For this a number of compounds will be tested on their heat shock protein inducing effect and their effect on quorum sensing interference.
