StressChron Framework:

Project code 024
Acronym CORTENZ
Role Partner
Research area Unravelling the impact of chronic stress across vertebrates
Research topic Feed as stressor focusing on invertebrates (e.g. Artemia), mycotoxins and fish feed constituents
Vertebrate Fish
Species Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus)

Abstract:

The research goal is to assess the effect of the provision of different enzymes in a feed trial with Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) on the hypothalamic-pituitary-interrenal (HPI) axis activity by quantification of scale cortisol using ultra-performance liquid chromatography coupled to tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) as biomarker for chronic stress in fish.

Specifics:

Keywords: aquaculture, fish, stress, diet, optimization, scale cortisol

Funding: Internal

Status: Finalized

Consortium:

Ghent University, Belgium (Aerts J, De Visscher J)

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

Kaho Sint-Niklaas (Meeus W)
