Case studies

Lighting the future of aquaculture

Philips Lighting Aquaculture funds research programs to ensure you benefits from combining the latest developments in LED technology with fish physiology research results

University of Striling PhD

PhD program at University of Stirling

The aim of the program is to understand the impact of different lighting conditions on Atlantic salmon physiology. The ultimate goal is to identify lighting strategies that boost growth and development during juvenile phase and successful on-growing phase. The project is being carried out in a special laboratory with controlled LED lighting provided by Philips Lighting Aquaculture.
University of Bergen Postdoc

Post-doctoral program at University of Bergen

This program studies the neural activation and photoreceptor elements of the Atlantic salmon brain after stimulation with narrow-band LED light of different wavelengths. Analysis demonstrates that specific brain regions are activated under different lighting intensities and colors providing distinct responses. These regulatory effects of light are used to control production in terms of delayed maturation and growth stimulation.
Research Universities

Fish species research studies



At various research institutes and customers, studies are being conducted into the impact of light on salmon, trout, tilapia, eel and other fish. The aim is to identify optimum lighting solutions for these species.
