• Factors influencing risk assessments of brominated flame-retardants; evidence based on seafood from the North East Atlantic Ocean 

      Nøstbakken, Ole Jakob; Duinker, Arne; Rasinger, Josef Daniel; Nilsen, Bente Merete; Sanden, Monica; Frantzen, Sylvia; Hove, Helge Torbjørn; Lundebye, Anne-Katrine; Berntssen, Marc; Hannisdal, Rita; Madsen, Lise; Måge, Amund (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Brominated flame-retardants (BFRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) are considered hazardous to human health. Due to their persistence, they are still present in the environment ...
    • Safe limits of selenomethionine and selenite supplementation to plant-based Atlantic salmon feeds 

      Berntssen, Marc; Betancor, Mónica B.; Caballero, María José; Hillestad, Marie; Rasinger, Josef Daniel; Hamre, Kristin; Sele, Veronika; Amlund, Heidi; Ørnsrud, Robin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The use of plant-based feeds warrants the supplementation with selenium (Se) to cover the requirement for Atlantic salmon. Depending on its chemical form, Se is a trace element with a narrow range between requirement and ...
    • Species-specific discrimination of insect meals for aquafeeds by direct comparison of tandem mass spectra 

      Belghit, Ikram; Lock, Erik-Jan; Fumière, Olivier; Lecrenier, Marie-Caroline; Renard, Patricia; Dieu, Marc; Berntssen, Marc; Palmblad, Magnus; Rasinger, Josef Daniel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Insect protein has the potential to become a sustainable feed ingredient for the rapidly growing aquaculture industry. In the European Union, insect derived protein is placed under the same legislation as processed animal ...
    • Subchronic dietary exposure to ethoxyquin dimer induces microvesicular steatosis in male BALB/c mice 

      Bernhard, Annette; Rasinger, Josef Daniel; Wisløff, Helene; Kolbjørnsen, Øyvor; Myrmel, Lene Secher; Berntssen, Marc; Lundebye, Anne-Katrine; Ørnsrud, Robin; Madsen, Lise (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The use of the synthetic antioxidant ethoxyquin (6-ethoxy-2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline; EQ) in animal feed results in the presence of EQ residues and metabolites, including the EQ dimer (1,8′-bi(6-ethoxy-2,2,4-tr ...
    • Tolerance and dose-response assessment of subchronic dietary ethoxyquin exposure in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) 

      Bernhard, Annette; Rasinger, Josef Daniel; Betancor, Mónica B.; Caballero, María José; Berntssen, Marc; Lundebye, Anne-Katrine; Ørnsrud, Robin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Ethoxyquin (EQ; 6-Ethoxy-2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline) has been used as an antioxidant in feed components for pets, livestock and aquaculture. However, possible risks of EQ used in aquafeed for fish health have not ...
