Effect of teflubenzuron on shrimps
Start date: 1. January 2016
End date: 31. December 2017
Financed by: NIFES
In cooperation with: Institute of Marine Research
The project is lead by: NIFES


Aquatic crustaceans are highly susceptible to teflubenzuron, a pesticide used to control salmon louse infestation on farmed salmon. Fish are considered much less susceptible than crustaceans to this pesticide. There is a lack of knowledge on the mechanistic effects of teflubenzuron both for crustaceans and fish.


The aim of the project is to study intracellular mechanisms in juvenile shrimps exposed to teflubenzuron, focusing on stress, detoxification, lipid metabolism and molting.
