Research Topic: Salinity tolerance and distribution of juvenile lumpfish

My master thesis research is trying to determine the salinity tolerance of juvenile lumpfish, so that they may be used for different species in the aquaculture industry as a 'cleaner fish'. The second part of my thesis is looking at the spatial and temporal distribution of juvenile lumpfish in the Great Bay estuary.
