The Nordic and Baltic countries are boosting research in aquaculture with nine new research projects. Among other things, the projects are to develop sustainable feed for salmon farming. The Director of NordForsk says this is an important step along the Nordic region’s path of becoming the world’s most sustainable region by 2030.
The RAS-TOOLS project will pave the way for the development of next generation RAS monitoring for better control of water quality and fish health issues, and thereby contribute to the development of a sustainable RAS industry.
BIOWATER will serve as the first Nordic science center and platform that provides solutions for land, environmental and water resources management in the face of potential and competing demands for biomass, land and water resources related to the green shift and concurrent bio-economic development.
The NordAqua NCoE brings internationally recognized Nordic senior scientists and younger PIs together with experts in industrial biorefinery fields in order to generate a multidisciplinary platform for rapid transition to sustainable blue bioeconomy.
Aquaculture is a growing global business, which faces many facets of sustainability challenges. The overarching aim of the Programme is to generate knowledge and solutions for sustainable land-based and marine salmonid aquaculture in the Nordic countries.
