A new Norwegian bioeconomy based on cultivation and processing of seaweeds: Oportunities and R&D

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=SINTEF+A25981

Cultivation of macroalgae at the lowest trophic level, using only sunlight and nutrients from the sea while taking up CO2, will have a neutral carbon footprint and the biomass will contribute significantly to meet the demand for food, feed, materials, chemicals, fuels and pharmaceuticals in near fut...

Temperature-dependent feed requirements in farmed blue mussels (Mytilus edulis L.) estimated from soft tissue growth and oxygen consumption and ammonia-N excretion

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=SINTEF+S21954

Feed requirements were estimated from specific growth rates in standardized soft tissue dry weight (SGRDW’) and atomic O:N ratios for mussels fed seven rations of microalgae (5–735 μg C h−1 ind−1) at 7 and 14°C respectively. The mean oxygen consumption and ammonia-N excretion rates were significantl...

Growth of farmed blue mussels (Mytilus edulis L) in a Norwegian coastal area; comparison of food proxies by DEB modeling

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=SINTEF+S21838

Seston variables and growth of the blue mussel (Mytilus edulis L.) were measured during the growth season from March to October in three suspended longline farms in Central Norway; one in the inner part of Åfjorden (63° 56′ N, 10° 11′ E) and two in Inner and Outer Koet, respectively (63° 49′ N, 9° 4...

Development of Saccharina latissima (Phaeophyceae) kelp hatcheries with year-round production of zoospores and juvenile sporophytes on culture ropes for kelp aquaculture

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=SINTEF+S21836

Saccharina latissima is attractive for industrial cultivation for different usages, such as biofuels, feed supplements, and derivation of chemicals. A continuous supply of kelp sporelings throughout the year may ensure a year-round production of kelp juveniles on ropes. In this study, induction of s...

Controlled artificial upwelling in a fjord to stimulate non-toxic algae

http://www.sintef.no/en/publications/publication/?pubid=SINTEF+S16166

During the summer, primary production in the surface layers of some fjords depletes the nutrients to the degree that some species of toxic algae can dominate. We describe field experiments employing a bubble curtain and a submerged freshwater outlet to lift significant amounts of nutrient-rich seawa...
