Nutrient models for salmon farms use information on nitrogen and phosphorus input and waste to predict nutrient output and wider impacts of salmon farms. This project will interrogate historical nutrition experimental data to generate more accurate models of nutrient cycling from salmon farms under current feeding regimes and stages of production. In addition, experiments may be designed to examine the theoretical basis for environment nutrient loading calculations based on different diets, fish sizes and environmental conditions, to experimentally compare environmental performance and to model nutrient losses under different production scenarios.
Suitable for February or July start date.
