Digestion, OsmoreGulation and Metabolism in fish relevant to AquaculTure and in a Changing Climate

Project description

Predicting effects of climate change on rainbow trout

Increasing carbon emissions contribute to climate change. What effect does this have on aquatic life and the quality of fish we consume? The EU-funded DOGMATiCC project will investigate the impacts of rising CO2 levels on the feeding habits and homeostatic balance of rainbow trout in freshwater and marine environments. Studies will explore the cardiovascular function and osmotic regulation of trout specimens that have been exposed to varying levels of CO2 in order to predict their physiological responses to climate change. The project will not only further our understanding of how climate change impacts fish, but it will also provide the aquaculture industry with recommendations on how to improve the health of farmed fish.
