SINTEF Ocean finished a trial on temperature and feed type effect. We fed a gradient form aquculture sludge to pure biogas digestate to the polychaete Hediste diversicolor. Temperature had a pronounced effect on growth and survival, when it got too warm survival decreased. The feed type had no pronounced effect on growth, all worms did well!
Most important: The samples arrived in Spain & Portugal for fatty acid, lipidomics and gene expression analysis to figure out if, and how much de novo synthesis we were able to stimulate.
Finally it happened: SIDESTREAM held its' official kick off meeting. Unfortulately virtual.
It was nice anyway to meet the consortium, discuss things & set up plans.
Next meeting will be alongside the Aquculture Europe meeting in Funchal, Madeira!
