Abstract:

This study focuses on the influence of long-term elevated levels of ‘natural’ de novo synthesized glucocorticoids by the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Interrenal axis (as seen in chronic stress) on the microbiome in RAS.

Specifics:

Keywords: fish, RAS, stress, glucocorticoids, microbiome

Funding: Internal

Status: On-going

Consortium:

Ghent University, Belgium (Aerts J, Boon N, Briels N, Props, R)

Flanders Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Belgium (Aerts J)

Output:

MSc thesis Jens Lagaisse ‘Future steering of the microbiome: the interplay between glucocorticoids and the bacterial community of recirculating aquaculture systems’
