Torborg's Master thesis in the Southern Ocean: Letter 19.2.2016 — More trawling...
Martine Røysted Solås participated in BIO299, Research Project in Biology. Her task was to study whether salmon fry from enriched hatchery environment have higher survival in the wild than those from the normal hatchery environment. The final touch to the work was given while she was taking the Arctic Biology course at UNIS (University Centre in Svalbard).
Landvikvannet near Grimstad is the only freshwater lake in Norway where Atlantic herring can be found. So far not much is know about this mystery, but our Phd student Florian Eggers is trying to solve it.
