Biography Bjarne Hatlen
As a senior scientist within Nutrition and feed technology in Nofima, I am working within different fields of practical nutrition, such as feed formulation, raw material evaluation and protein utilization, mainly in Atlantic salmon. Recently, I have been increasingly involved in projects on dietary oil sources and utilization of omega-3 fatty acids. I am a diploma engineer in biotechnology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim (1990) and have a PhD in aquaculture biology from the University of Tromsø (1997). I have been in Nofima since 2004.
Bjarne Hatlen has 45 publications at Nofima:
1. February 2020 – 31. January 2024
NewTechAqua is a EU-funded project will test and develop new solutions for European aquaculture.
1. January 2019 – 31. December 2022
AquaIMPACT is a EU-funded research project that integrates breeding and nutrition to increase the competitiveness of the EU's aquaculture of Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, gilthead sebream and European seabass, to ensure food and nutritional security and to satisfy consumers' demands for high quality seafood with limited environmental impact.
This project will study how feed composition affects physiological mechanisms that control the pigmentation of salmon muscle and contribute to the development of a feed that secure good and predictable pigmentation of farmed salmon.
