Focus on cleaner fish

In recent years, Marine Harvest Norway AS has invested significantly in the production of cleaner fish, both ballan wrasse and lumpfish.

In collaboration with PatoGen, we have devised a screening programme for lumpfish broodstock. We want more knowledge on which pathogens these fish can carry. Using this screening program, we can reduce the risk of infection in the production of cleaner fish and thus achieve better fish health in lumpfish, both on land and in cages. We can acquire knowledge on pathogens that can pass from lumpfish to salmon.

As requested, PatoGen has quickly established relevant analyses. PatoGen has processed all samples and dispatches professionally, quickly and with great scientific engagement.
