CtrlAQUA is a Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) that will lay the foundation for the development of closed-containment concepts of the future. With greater control of the production process, it will be possible to reduce problems associated with mortality and sea lice, and to reduce the production time for farmed salmon.
The aim of this project is to assess the potential for increased production and added value of food from the Arctic.
Our goal is for everyone to be able to eat good and healthy food – whatever their circumstances in life.
Through better drying methods and good knowledge dissemination, research will contribute to more new and nutritious dried food products.
What happens in pre-packed fish products during freezing, thawing and heat treatment? In this project we document the effects to improve and develop new products and prolong shelf life.
In this multi-disciplinary project we have studied the entire value chain for mackerel and farmed salmon.
With the use of modern, research-based process technology and expertise, unused or under utilized biomass of marine or terrestrial origin can be used for new, marketable products. We coordinate, develop and increase Nofima’s total expertise related to the future of sustainable protein production. Peptek is a strategic research initiative focused on sustainability, total utilization, food safety and future food security.
The current focus is on the future competitive situation for Norwegian clipfish. Are the competitive advantages for the Norwegian industry eroding? If so, why?
In this project we will develop cold adapted glue enzyme from fish for use in food production.
All available data on the aquaculture industry relating to environmental, economic and social repercussions is to be collated andmade available in a web portal that presents the industry’s sustainability.
