Interdisciplinary Project on Climate change in Tropical Aquaculture (iAQUA)

Research project To understand how global warming will affect tropical aquaculture, we will study how a temperature rise from the current value of 27-32 °C to 32-37 °C will affect physiological performance, food conversion efficiency and growth in air-breathing fish ... Project completion report: The project exceeded most of its objectives. We planned for 1 Danish PhD and 4 Vietnamese, but end up with 2 Danish (due to kind funding from Faculty of Science and Technology at AU) and with 5 Vietnamese PhD. We ai ...

Effects of temperature and hypoxia on aerobic scope in the giant freshwater shrimps (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) and (Penaeus monodon)

Research project Depending on future CO2 emission scenarios, the average surface temperature is projected to increase 1.1-6.4°C by 2100. Tropical species, compared to many temperate species, are expected to be particularly sensitive to elevated temperatures because ... Project Completion Report: In light of the ongoing climate change, the ability to predict future effects on biota has received much attention, where it has been sought to establish a unifying model granting predictive power to characterize an ...
