Project description

Unpredictable larval survival and quality, which have strong microbial components, are major bottlenecks in aquaculture. We need to understand and use these interactions to the benefit of fish. This project aims to disentangle the host-microbial interactions through systematic gathering of novel information. This will allow developing new protocols to rear aquaculture organisms in a sustainable and economical efficient way.
