SINTEF Ocean Marine Resources
Marine resource technology
The sea has a vast biological diversity of resources. Department of marine resources Technology execute biology- and technology-based research projects for the utilization of marine resources. We have mathematical models for the spreading of lice in sea, we grow seaweed and research on how we can develop tomorrow's solutions through integrated aquaculture.
ENTiCE is a three year project financed by the Research council of Norway in which SINTEF Fisheries and aquaculture, NTNU, Frøya High School, and the Scottish Association for Marine Science will implement and develop new technologies for studying the interactions between physical, chemical and basic biological processes in coastal waters.
