Final Report - SMARTFISH (Study of specific cell mediated immunity and vaccine optimization against bacterial and viral infections in trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss))

Project ID: 220200
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report for the SMARTFISH project. Fish are one of the most widely used low-cost protein sources in many parts of the world. However, it is clear that the availability of fish harvested from capture fisheries to support the growing demand for fish protein will be inadequate. Thus, the world will need to turn to producing fish, i.e. aquaculture. The control and prevention of infectious diseases is a major goal in fish farming due to the important economical losses they cause. Therefore, knowledge of the fish immune system is of practical importance. The report lists the final conclusion of the project.
