Abstract:

This study aims to contribute to unravelling the effects of individual coping style and long-term glucocorticoid up-regulation on cardiac remodeling in one of the most important aquaculture species, the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). This project will be the first to not only examine the influence of long term glucocorticoid exposure, as seen in chronic stress, on fish cardiac remodeling, but also to look at the consequences for fish performance and test a potential mitigation strategy.
