Project start: Syncrosmolt


Project leader: Simen Rød Sandve, CIGENE

The project Synchrosmolt started January 2020. The main objective is to provide new knowledge about how exposure to variation in daylength during smolt production can affect smolt development.

The kick-off meeting was arranged in December 2019, and the smoltification experiment has already started.
