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.
RACE Digital Cage
A digital platform for monitoring and visualisation of aquaculture net cages and fish distribution based on sensors, real-time simulations and data assimilation (theoretical, mathematical models combined with observations).
RACE Mucus Sensor
Development and validation of new tools and methods for quantifying the thickness of the mucosal layer of Atlantic salmon in order to better understand what effect various aquaculture operations have on the mucosal layer.
Model testing opens new possibilities
As a part of the project “Design and Verification of Large Floating Coastal Structures” (LFCS), a new model test was recently conducted in the Ocean Basin Laboratory.

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.
