Recently, skin ulcers in flatfish have been observed with increased incidence in the Nord Sea. The etiology of such lesions are diverse and can be attributed to infections with pathogens, trauma, pollution and inadequate water parameters. However, it is not yet known which factors are involved in the lesions observed. The purpose of the research is to gain better insights in the factor(s) causing the skin ulcers.
