David has a background in fish microbiology, immunology and prebiotic/probiotic applications in fish and shrimp. He has worked at Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre since 2016 with a focus on microbiome interactions and applications within aquaculture. His work includes identifying and the screening of novel functional feeds for fish and shrimp with the main aim to support gut health. Furthermore, his research also encompasses the mitigation of pathogens and environmental challenges within aquatic ecosystems.
Function in the project: Whilst Rebecca is on maternity leave, David will coordinate Skretting ARC’s activities in the Fish-AI project, which include fish trials, feed production, and administration.
Grethe held a number of R&D positions within the field of aquaculture nutrition before joining the Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre in 1990. Her work focuses on the use of alternative raw materials to fish meal and fish oil, with a special emphasis on lipid sources, and the development of feeds for new species in aquaculture, primarily starter feeds and broodstock nutrition. Grethe has co-authored over 80 scientific publications.
Function in the project: Grethe will offer support in the formulation and analysis of feeds.
