Micanti has developed a new standard to prevent fouling on submerged structures and moving objects like ships.
In 2010, Micanti has introduced its non-toxic antifouling product Thorn-D to the salmon industry. The first year was used to optimise the product for North Atlantic conditions and 2011will be the year to fully prove the product. The results of exposure in Scotland and Norway show that fouling is prevented succesfully with the dedicated product for cold water conditions.
The rugged marine environment aboard ships, at the docks, at the sea shore, at the farms, on the net cages and other marine vicinities calls for ‘rugged’, reliable and proven technology. Sea water resistant, still operating in freezing cold, muddy and sandy conditions; situations your business is operating in. At home, at the office a comparable system, slim, fast and based on the same business operation system Windows 8.
This project was initiated to develop the necessary tools to trace escaped farmed salmon back to farm of origin. The idea is that salmon can be traced back to their parents using genetic information. By combining parental assignment with logistics information: using data from the delivery of eggs from breeding companies to hatcheries, the responsible farm will be disclosed, whereas other farmers are cleared from suspicion.
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is an inexpensive and robust freshwater aquarium fish with high fecundity and a short life cycle (3-4 generations per year). The time from fertilisation to hatching is approximately 48 hours, and the embryo and larvae remain transparent beyond the start feeding stage.
The "Norwegian Zebrafish Platform" (2008-2012) is a part of the Research Council of Norway's Functional Genomics Program, forming the hub in the national network of zebrafish research laboratories "Zebrafish Network Norway" (http://zebrafish.no). We offer scientific collaboration and contract research services:
Measure transcriptomic and epigenomic effects of external factors like toxins, pathogens, etc.
Reverse genetics techniques in vertebrate functional genomics
