Deakin has signed a new research agreement with Australia’s largest Atlantic salmon producer, Tassal Operations, to improve the welfare and survival of thousands of salmon that are transferred from freshwater hatcheries every year to sea cages.

Its new contract with Deakin builds on two previous research projects that have been undertaken with Deakin’s scientists Dr Luis Afonso and Dr Paul Jones, from the CIE, School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the Warrnambool campus.
