Follow the stories behind the developing aquaculture science
ensuring a future for food that is high quality,
circular and sustainable.
Balancing the needs of a global growing population,
through the work on the ground of the
farmers, fishermen, consumers and chefs.
We join leading experts in the field of agricultural sciences,
biotechnology, and culinary science to find
sustainable advancements in food production.

The Nutrient Loop in Aquaculture
In this film we follow the flow of nutrients needed for Starting our journey in Älvkarleby, the home of salmon farming.
We follow the route the wild salmon would naturally take... if the dams didn't block the rivers waterway.
We see how SLU are involved in the cycle to keep young salmon in circulation and discover how the problem is compounded by what has happened in the lakes upstream.
Where a combination of climate change and the dam has completely caused a “game changer” in the former river lake, by a dramatic loss in the beach zoon followed by loss of nutrients. Which in next step result in power of the natural food chain to support vital fish populations and production of large and healthy fish..
"THE HOUR OF THE ARCTIC CHAR"
Does time after slaughter change the taste and quality of the arctic char?
Can farmed fish give consumers new products if we timed the changes in quality during of breakdown in the fish meat?
We assembled the finest palettes to analyse flavours and textures of both cooked and raw fish, and used ground breaking science to determine the biochemical balance matching the sensory results of the panel.
