Wild fish can be stored alive, which increases both the quality and the value of the catch. Nofima research has been central to the development of this method, and we work closely with the industry to improve both the technology and fish welfare.
Our scientists gain knowledge about how we can improve the quality of seafood, how the raw materials can be handled and used optimally, and how the fishing industry can increase the value of its products.
Healthy food that tastes good and is easy to prepare – this is what consumers want. Nofima is working with technologies and storage methods to ensure safe food that maintains a high quality for as long as possible.
Our scientists help food producers to develop food for better health. This may involve new products and improved production methods, or the use of correct packaging, storage conditions and preparation methods.
Nofima’s research is focused on increasing the value of marine raw materials. Our scientists have extensive experience within the field of bioprospecting, bioprosessing and scale up of processes in order to exploit and preserve value in raw materials from the ocean.
The production biology department works with major challenges in the aquaculture industry, including salmon lice, escapes, animal welfare, sustainability and production optimisation.
