Canadian University Allocates Funds for Salmon Farming Research
“New Brunswickers working in the Atlantic salmon farming industry will benefit from new research at the Universite de Moncton that aims to reduce stress among fish, resulting in healthier salmon and lower costs to producers,” reports Undercurrent News. At the Université de Moncton a team of researchers are working towards quickly identifying the physiological and biochemical signs of stress in farmed Atlantic Salmon.
“The investments are made through the Canada Foundation for Innovation’s (CFI) John R. Evans Leaders Fund, a fund designed to help universities attract and retain the very best researchers by ensuring they have access to cutting edge equipment and facilities.” At Deep Trekker we aim to provide a unit that can be used for projects such as these and offer an easy yet effective way of observing fish in their farmed environments. Many farms will have the opportunity to benefit from the research that will take place. This is exactly the kind of initiative that we stand behind here at Deep Trekker Inc.
