SINTEF Ocean Aquaculture Technology
SINTEF Ocean 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.
An adaptable e-infrastructure for field studies in the aquaculture industry.
SalmonInsight shall provide new knowledge and technology to improve welfare and reduce stress in salmon production.
CARBIOMEMBEX - Novel biocatalytic membrane technology for the efficient removal of CO2 in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems
CO2 removal from process water is an essential component of land-based aquaculture. CARBIOMEMBEX aims at developing novel technology for CO2 separation in aquaculture by combining state-of-the-art membrane technology and biocatalysis into innovative enzyme-membrane contactor systems for efficient CO2 removal from water.
The project emphasizes on the advancement of aquaculture technology systems that are economically sustainable and improve animal welfare. This includes, the use of flexible shielding skirts for prevention of ectoparasites infestation (Sealice,...) of farmed fish salmon, procedures for underwater monitoring and safe and efficient operation.
Global Aquatech Summit
The young and growing aquaculture industry is in rapid development. World Resource Institute has estimated that the production must be doubled from the 65-70 million metric tons today, to 160 million metric tons by 2050. This to keep up with the demand for fish from an increasing population, up to 10 billion people at that time.

SINTEF Ocean is part of the AQUAculture infrastructures for EXCELlence in European fish research towards 2020, a Horizon 2020 research infrastructure project, aiming to support the sustainable growth of the aquaculture sector in Europe.
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.
