I am a PhD student working on Aquatic Infectious Diseases. My project is titled “Push-Pull strategies: combination control of fish pathogens” and through my research I try to further understand the behaviour of the parasite in relation to its host, investigate non-invasive monitoring techniques as well as explore methods for controlling and eliminating the parasite burden.

Therefore, I have created a survey regarding treatments of aquatic infectious diseases in freshwater ornamental fish in order to gather information on which treatments people use against parasites how they use them. I am hoping to reach people across all fields, from academia to industry, aquariums, wholesalers, hobbyists etc. in order to get a complete picture. In the end, I wish to create and short and easy guide on how people should use treatments.

Additionally, I collaborate with an industrial partner, Adisseo, an international animal nutrition company, which produces feed additives in order to improve welfare, growth and immunity of fish. Overall, my project involves different aspects of a host- parasite association in an aquatic environment.
