SINTEF Ocean New marine resources
New marine resources
The sea has a vast biological diversity of resources. SINTEF execute biology- and technology-based research projects for the utilization of vide variety 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.
Seaweed Cultivation Vessel 2020
The project will establish the first seaweed cultivation vessels to increase production volumes and industrialize the industry.
The climate is changing in the Arctic and projections by the IPCC suggests valuable marine resources are migrating further north. What does this mean for fishers, for tourists, for international politics and future communities in the far north, and for the Svalbard fisheries protection zone and Norwegian sovereignty in the area?
SUMMER H2020 Kick-off meeting
SUMMER is an EU H2020 research project with 22 partners from all over Europe. SINTEF Ocean is one of the partners of the project, which is coordinated by AZTI in Spain. The project had its kick-off meeting in Bilboa, Spain, from 24th to 26th of September last year. The kick-off meeting was a partly joint meeting together with MEESO, another EU-H2020 project funded to study the mesopelagic challenges.
