The objective of the MACROSEA project is to facilitate industrial scale cultivation of seaweed in Norway. To achieve efficient large scale cultivation, development of cultivation technology is an important component, and in Work Package 5 - Seed/ing, Deployment and Harvest Technology- the objective ...

This brief report documents the deliverable D5.2 Proof of concept on seeding systems from MACROSEA WP5. By seeding systems we mean the technology used to produce substrate with seedlings ready for deployment at sea. SINTEF Ocean has demonstrated a partly automated production line based on carrier ro...

Rapporten er en utredning om potensialet for storskala dyrking av makroalger i Trøndelag. Dyrking av makroalger både innenfor og utenfor grunnlinjen blir vurdert. De nye forskningsresultatene er basert på simuleringer med en koblet fysisk-biologisk havmodell og på dybdeintervjuer...

To obtain more knowledge of current induced drag forces on sugar kelp, towing tests with ropes containing cultivated sugar kelp was conducted. As freshwater may damage the kelp and cause changes in its mechanical response, tests were performed in a test facility containing seawater. A special purpos...

We have evaluated the cultivation potential of sugar kelp (Saccharina latissima) as a function of latitude and position (near- and offshore) along the Norwegian coast using a coupled 3D hydrodynamic-biogeochemical-kelp model system (SINMOD) run for four growth seasons (2012-2016). The results are sp...

Integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) has the potential of reducing open-cage fish farming impacts on the environment while also introducing new value chains. The aim of this study was to investigate the growth and composition of the kelp Saccharina latissima in salmon-driven IMTA, and to asse...

The production process for seedlings of macroalgae is analysed with regard to challenges and bottlenecks associated with industrial scale production. Based on issues identified for each sub-process, an action plan with rough estimates of time/cost requirements and proposed prioritization is given as...
