HypOnFjordFish Work Programs

The HypOnFjordFish research program uses west Norwegian fjords as natural model systems to study the effects of hypoxia on fish communities and ecosystems. The project will provide new knowledge on how fish physiologically and behaviourally respond to hypoxia and how this affects populations, trophic interactions, and production in fjord ecosystems. The research objectives are split into 4 primary work programs. More information on each work program coming soon.

WP1: Effects of hypoxia on diel vertical migration patterns

WP2: Physiological impacts of hypoxia on fish metabolism and growth

WP3: Fish ear bones as record keepers of hypoxia and environmental stress

WP4: Changes in community structure and trophic interactions under hypoxia
