Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Oslo, Norway

This PhD project will focus on developing new hatchery techniques for rearing Atlantic salmon for stock enhancement, resulting in improved fitness through increased cognitive ability and increased post-release survival. New hatchery paradigms will be designed to increase important life-fitness behaviours including foraging behavior and anti-predator behavior.
