The first articially fertilized spotted wolffish eggs hatched only 10 years ago, and today the species is considered a very promising candidate species for cold water aquaculture in the North Atlantic. Recent research has focused on identifying key biological parameters in spotted wolffish aquaculture in order to establish a full production line for the(More)
The lipid-rich pelagic teleost Maurolicus muelleri has large lipid depots located subcutaneously, intramuscularly and around the digestive tract. The lipid is contained within conventional adipocytes and is composed largely of triacylglycerols rich in 20:1 (n-9) and lipid-rich mesopelagic teleost Benthosema glaciale, except that the lipid is predominantly(More)
Due to a northward shift in oil and gas activities, there is an increasing need to understand the potential anthropogenic impacts of oil-related compounds on sub-Arctic and Arctic organisms, particularly those in coastal habitats. Capelin (Mallotus villosus), a key fish species in the Barents Sea ecosystem, undertakes aggregated spawning at both intertidal(More)
Concentration dependent differences in acute and long-term effects of a 48 h exposure to mechanically or chemically dispersed crude oil were assessed on juvenile lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus). Acute or post-exposure mortality was only observed at oil concentrations representing higher concentrations than reported after real oil spills. Acute mortality was(More)
Increasing human activities in the Arctic raise the risk of petroleum pollution, thus posing an elevated risk for Arctic organisms to be chronically exposed to petroleum compounds. The endocrine disrupting properties of some of these compounds (i.e. polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons [PAHs]) present in crude oil may have negative effects on the long and(More)
