Antibody ELISAs - an alternative to challenge trials for batch potency testing of fish vaccines

This project aims to create a firm scientific basis for the discontinuation of infection experiments as the method for routine quality testing of fish vaccines. In a series of trials it will demonstrate the main feasibility of an alternative method (antibody tests), that only involves vaccination and blood sampling under anesthesia, without additional procedures for the test fish. The project will also utilize the samples from the experiments to determine whether one can measure the degree of welfare impact on salmon using a neurotransmitter substance in the fish brain (serotonin). Last but not least, the project will develop a clinical welfare assessment scheme for recording how much welfare strain fish included in batch potency tests have experienced, and to demonstrate how large welfare gains the new test method represents. The project results will be used by both business and government, and representatives of fish vaccine industry and regulatory authorities will therefore be invited to follow the project closely through a reference group.
