SINTEF Ocean Aquaculture
Department of Aquaculture Technology performs research projects in the entire farmed fish chain, from breeding fish to slaughtering. Our team consists of both technologists and biologists, several of which have experience in practical operation.
Safe operation of CLOSED aquaculture CAGES in WAVES (CCW)
Recently the Norwegian aquaculture industry has focused increasingly on floating closed cages, and currently there are several working prototypes, and even more in the planning phase. The industry's motivation is to have better control over the water quality, and especially to avoid the problem with salmon lice.
Development of technology for autonomous, bio-interactive and high quality data acquisition from aquaculture net cages
A “health centre” for juvenile salmon
The condition of the water in salmon hatcheries can tell us a great deal about when and why outbreaks of disease occur. Now, SINTEF researchers are about to expose the water’s secrets, both to prevent suffering in fish and to save the aquaculture industry a great deal of money.
New project shall provide better understanding of food value chain and network dynamics
To address specific challenges facing the food system and food value chains in Europe, SINTEF Ocean along with 21 international partners from Europe and Asia, have kick started the EU Horizon2020 project VALUMICS in June 2017.
