4FatQs: The importance of dietary omega-3 fatty acids for development of cognitive skills in wild fishes
The aim of the project is to use the framework of Tinbergen’s four essential questions to understand the mechanism through which dietary intake and internal synthesis n-3 LC-PUFA affects biochemical and cellular quality of brain and cognitive traits of brown trout. The necessary laboratory and experimental work will be accompanied by sampling of wild populations of brown trout and the assessment of their behaviour and fitness in their natural river environment (e.g., by using radio telemetry). Primary investigator of the project is Dr. Libor Závorka from WasserCluster Lunz and Dr. Martin Kainz (WasserCluster Lunz). Dr. Pavel Němec (Charles Univesity in Prague), and Prof. Shaun Killen (University of Glasgow) are project collaborators.
WasserCluster Lunz will be represented at three locations at Lange Nacht der Forschung on May 22:

Do fats from carp ponds increase biodiversity on land? - Universität für Weiterbildung Krems
