SalmoSim is a start-up company from the University of Glasgow which uses our bespoke salmon gut simulation machine to provide services and partnerships to operators in salmon aquaculture.
SalmoSim® was founded to fill a gap in applied research and development systems of salmon aquaculture: a comprehensive simulator of the salmon gastro-intestinal tract. We aim to understand the relationship between aquaproducts, nutrient bioaccessibility and gut microbes in order to improve the productivity and sustainability of products for aquaculture.
SalmoSim is designed to dramatically reduce the in vivo testing costs involved with bringing innovative feed ingredients to market.
Salmosim was initiated in 2016 by Dr Martin Llewellyn, principal investigator at the University of Glasgow (Scotland), in collaboration with Marine Harvest, College Cork (Ireland) and enterprises, Alltech (USA) and Nofima (Norway).
We recruited doctoral candidate Raminta Kazlauskaite who developed and validated the SalmoSim technology.
