AquaResp is a free (and open source) software for performing intermittent respirometry on aquatic animals. The name AquaResp is a contraction of  DTU-Aqua (Technical University of Denmark – Institute of Aquatic Resources) and respirometry, and it is a registered trademark. However, since approx. 2012, the main development and testing of the software has taken place in the Steffensen lab at the Marine Biological Section at the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen.

AquaResp is complety free – and will always be – but we hope you will acknowledge us in your future publications based on this software. For now you can cite, but our intention is to publish a paper describing the measuring principle as well as the software as soon as possible – this will be the future reference.

The presentmost version of Aquaresp is 3.0, with version name”ASAP”. It has been publicly released per Dec. 6. 2018, after 2 years of development and testing. See this page for more information.

AquaResp will soon be available for swim tunnel respirometry as well. It is made, but we are testing it. (as of june 2017)

Initially, AquaResp was the result of a collaboration between M.Sc.Eng. Morten Bo Søndergaard Svendsen, DTU Aqua, National Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark, and the Marine Biological Section (MARS), Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. – December 6, 2018
