About Ida Hedén

Project description
PhD student in the Fish Endocrinology Laboratory, which focuses on basic research in fish physiology and aquaculture related research. The PhD project is a part of a major interdisciplinary project called SWEMARC, https://swemarc.gu.se/. SWEMARC has gathered a number of leading research groups in the fields of economics, social sciences, law, oceanography, biology and design with the aim of developing sustainable marine aquaculture models through transdisciplinary research to increase the cultivation of food from the ocean in an environmentally sound manner.


My research area
The focus of my research is on physiological issues that concern the ability to provide resource-efficient growth of fish with new alternative feed sources in closed re-circulating aquaculture systems without affecting the welfare of the fish.
 

I am involved in several projects and work with alternative feed for different fish species such as wolffish (Anarhichas lupus and A. minor), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) och African catfish (Clarias gariepinus).
 

Scientific interests:
                • Fish physiology
                      - Growth physiology
                      - Appetite regulation
                      - Nutrient Uptake
                      - Stress physiology
                 • Sustainable food production

To ensure that the new alternative feed sources does not negatively affect the growth and welfare of the fish physiological measurements can be used. My belief is that if you ensure the welfare of the fish, the final product to the consumer will also be of the highest quality.


There is a lot of research on alternative feed sources, with much focus on land-based products such as wheat, corn and soybean. My focus is on marine products such as micro / macro algae, sea squirts and side-stream products from the shrimp-, herring- and mussel industry. Products from the ocean have a very beneficial nutritional composition of amino acids and fatty acids that contribute to rapid and healthy growth of the fish but also a high nutritional content in the final product for human consumption
