RP2 – Animal Health in Early Life Stages of Salmonids and Native Resources

The RP2 Line focuses on increasing knowledge of viral and bacterial pathogens that affect farmed salmonids during the freshwater stage. Furthermore, considering the national need to diversify cultured species, the RP2 incorporates into its research program the study of rainbow trout as a model organism for freshwater studies, in addition to the red and golden conger, as well as the hedgehog. Red Sea as models of native species. Efforts necessary to acquire knowledge about the physiological adaptations of fish and health aspects that allow the successful establishment of the culture of native marine species.
