VESO Vikan holds two salmon farming licenses for R&D. The licenses enable trial conduct under commercial farming conditions throughout the salmon life cycle from hatching to harvest.
Field trials typically include feeding trials, trials for evaluation of efficacy and safety of vaccines and trials for evaluation of sea lice treatments. Parallel laboratory trials (including duration of protection) may be performed at VESO Vikan to validate results of field trials. Trials can be conducted according to GCP (Good Clinical Practice) and VESO Vikan also offers monitoring services for field trials conducted according to GCP at other locations.
