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.
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.
COPREST – Value Creation from Rest Raw Materials from Intensive Copepod Production
The scarcity of marine proteins and lipids is considered to be the greatest challenge needing to be addressed in order for the aquaculture sector to continue to grow in a sustainable manner. In COPREST, CFEED and SINTEF Ocean will explore the possibility of utilising copepods as a feed ingredient.
SINTEF Ocean joins Aker and World Economic Forum's worldwide network for ocean data
C4IR Ocean aims to establish the world's largest and most comprehensive platform for data from the ocean space realm. Together with SINTEF Ocean, and the other 16 partners in the centre, the platform will lay the groundwork for developing sustainable, ocean-based solutions for the future.
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.
