The STARTRENS research project covers life history from
fertilization till the end of the first-feeding stage for
two species of cleaner fish; Ballan wrasse (Labrus
bergylta) and lumpsucker (Cyclopterus lumpus).
Experimental studies will provide endpoints such as
respiration, dry weight, and C/N ratio, over time. We will
perform studies with different types of food to optimise the
diet during first-stage feeding.
models to interpret the data from the experimental
work on early-life stages of ballan wrasse and lumpfish.
