Transmission dynamics of the monogenean Gyrodactylus salaris under seminatural conditions
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-07-12)
Tracking individual variation in the dynamics of parasite infections in wild populations is often complicated by lack of knowledge of the epidemiological history of hosts. Whereas the dynamics and development of Gyrodactylus salaris Malmberg, 1957, on Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., are known from laboratory studies, knowledge about infection development on individual wild fishes is currently sparse. ...
Long-term ecological studies in northern lakes – challenges, experiences, and accomplishments
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-15)
We review three long‐term research programs performed over the last four decades on the ecology and management of oligotrophic lake systems with different fish communities at 69° N in Norway. Through whole‐lake perturbation experiments, intensive culling of stunted fish removed 35 tons (1984–1991) of Arctic charr <i>Salvelinus alpinus</i> in Takvatn (15 km<sup>2</sup>) and 153 tons (1981–1983, ...
The association between parasite infection and growth rates in Arctic charr: do fast growing fish have more parasites?
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-01)
Trophically transmitted parasites are known to impair fish growth in experimental studies, but this is not well documented in natural populations. For Arctic charr [<i>Salvelinus alpinus</i> (L.)], individual growth is positively correlated with food consumption. However, increased food consumption will increase the exposure to trophically transmitted parasites. Using a correlative approach, we ...
