Ongoing project: Modelling farmed fish gut microbiota dynamics in health and disease: improving beneficial host-microbiota interactions providing higher resilience to fish host.
The overall aim of the project is to develop an aquaculture rearing model favoring beneficial host-microbiota interactions providing higher resistance of fish host to disease. In this project, the brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis), the main freshwater fish produced in Quebec, is used as an experimental model. This project will have a great influence in the health and disease of farmed fish by harnessing gut microbiome and providing beneficial host-microbiota interactions models for the Canadian aquaculture industry.
I feel proud to be a part of this excellent resourceful lab, where diversify scientist work together with modern technology and equipment, and a place full of scientific enjoyment.
