Focus on feed and health for animals and man
Biomarkers, plant protein for fish feed, endocrine disrupters

The Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NVH) continuously has research activities in the area feed and health for animals and man. In 2009 the following projects are under way: 

  • Biomarkers for post market monitoring of short and long-term effects of genetically modified organisms on animal and human health (EU: Acronyme: GMSAFOOD).
  • Sources of plant protein for fish feed: Understanding and controlling antinutritional factors. The activities include analysis and transfer of bioactive metabolites from feed to fish (NRC, Industry)
  • Endocrine disrupters (ED): Risk assessment for food quality and animal health” (NRC, NVH)
  • Zebrafish as a model for effect studies of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) in aquatic ecosystems (NRC, NVH)
  • Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC, a CoE): The Nutrition Section at NVH is responsible for the The Gut and Health Group of APC. The vision of the Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC) is to secure sustainable growth in aquaculture by providing integrated basic nutritional, physiological, pathological and technological knowledge required for optimal use of protein in feeds for farmed fish. Effects of antinutrients and possible transfer from feed to fish flesh is one task in the research activity (NRC, NVH, University of Life Science, Nofima Marine).
