Marit Nederlof, Ph.D Student (The Netherlands)

Area of interest

The broad interest of Marit Nederlof is in the field of sustainable aquaculture. She is especially interested in integrated aquaculture systems and mainly in nutrient dynamics within these systems. Besides that she also has a strong interest in fish behaviour and welfare.

Relevant research

In 2013 Marit Nederlof started as a PhD-candidate at the Wageningen University. Her PhD is part of the TripleP@Sea project and is a collaboration between the Aquaculture & Fisheries Group and IMARES. She focusses on sustainability issues of Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) systems, by investigating processes and pathways involved in nutrient retention and studying the effect of different factors on nutrient retention efficiencies of these systems.

Before she started her PhD, Marit Nederlof did a Master in Biology at the Wageningen University. During this Master she studied the behaviour of common sole (Solea solea) and she looked at the stress response of gilthead sea bream (Sparus aurata). For the latter study, she went to Norway.
