The economic outcome from our fish farming industry is today drastically reduced due to infectious fish diseases.There are, however, today possibilities, through effecient disease prophylaxis, to reduce the losses due to fish diseases.One aim of the project work is to test modern, oil-based fish vaccines and to work out vaccination strategies adapted to our conditions.Another aim is to test and to introduce into our fish farming industry antimicrobial drugs more effecient and with less implications for the aquatic environment then those we are using.
