SUMMER's ambition is to obtain the information vital for a sustainable use of ocean resources through a comprehensive understanding of ocean functioning across its full depth.
MEESO shall uantify the spatio-temporal distributions of biomass, production and ecosystem role of mesopelagic resources and assess options to sustainably manage and govern their exploitation.
LowEmission Research Centre
The LowEmission Research Centre will develop new technologies and concepts for offshore energy systems, energy efficiency and integration with renewable power production technologies for application on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).
Decision support for fishing vessels based on marine ecosystem models and fishery data
FishGuider will increase the income and reduce the costs related to catch of pelagic fish species such as herring, cod and capelin. This will be achieved by development and validation of new theory for fish migration and a novel guidance system for fishing companies.
CoolFish will develop technologies and concepts for more integrated, energy-efficient and climate friendly cooling, freezing and heating onboard fishing vessels. It will also increase the knowledge transfer between research and industry, both nationally and internationally.
CROWDGUARD shall increase salmon farmers' control during crowding operations through development and validation of new and unique technology for data collection during crowding of salmon.
