ResiFarm - Resilient Robotic Autonomy for Underwater Operations in Fish Farms
Management of sea-based fish farms typically entails manual, and often challenging, inspection operations to monitor equipment, structures and biomass, which may result in sub-optimal and costly operations, insufficient maintenance, a general lack of control in daily routines and potential high risks for welfare of personnel and fish. This implies a need for new methods and technology for operations in modern fish farms, especially when moving operations to more exposed locations with more challenging environmental conditions, and when using new farm designs.
LINCCS: Carbon Links
Carbon Links (LINCCS) - Linking large-scale, cost-effective, permanent offshore storage across the value chain.
SMARTCHAIN will develop approaches and tools for sustainable utilisation, production planning, logistics optimisation, and traceability to facilitate transfer of bio-resources from catch/production throughout the value chain of fisheries and aquaculture products.
With ZeroKyst, we will strengthen Norwegian value creation and export through green growth. The project will demonstrate that both new and existing vessels in the seafood industry can be emission free and contribute to decreasing emissions from fishery and aquaculture vessels by 50% before 2030.
It is mandatory to treat water from land based recirculating aquaculture (RAS) before release from an aquaculture plant, and this implies a cost to the producer. At present, there is no established system for collection and reuse of RAS release water into new productions such as in aquaponics.
GOMPLAR - Governance of Marine Litter in the Arctic
The main objective of GOMPLAR is to describe, compare and analyze two regional international regulatory and governance frameworks addressing marine plastic litter in order to draw conclusions for possible solutions in the Arctic, seeking synergies and interplay mechanisms between a possible circumpolar arrangement and the two regional ones.
Compareit addresses how new production systems should be regulated, administered, and where they could be best located, which are highly relevant questions for a sustainable development of the industry that safeguards other societal interests and competing claims to space.
POLYKELP - Seaweed as feed source for protein-rich polychaetes aimed for salmon feed
The use of renewable marine bioresources to make feed ingredients for fish feed is still in its infancy. In POLYKELP, we will study seaweed and brush worms aimed for use as salmon feed.
Sustainable tuna fisheries through advanced earth observation technologies
Sustainable tuna fisheries through advanced earth observation technologies (SusTunTech) aims to improve fisheries sustainability. The project will enhance the fishing industry profit as well as contributing to fisheries sustainability.
