Biography Øystein Hermansen
I work as a researcher at Nofima . My research and interests spans a wide collection of topics. Behavioural patterns in fisheries and evaluation of fisheries management instruments are key areas. This includes both catch and landings patterns and changes in vessel quota portfolios. Analysis of corporate economics is central for behavioural studies, while social economics aret he cornerstone of the management instrument evaluations. Capture-based aquaculture is another important research area for me. Especially the economics of this utilization of a limited resouce. In addition, the market implications of increased supply of fresh fish during the low season for the fisheries are very interesting. My formal background is a masters degree infisheries science from the Norwegian College of Fisheries Science.

During this project, we will be identifying how the use of various types of commercial fishing gear affect the physiology and mortality of cod and thus their welfare and quality. We will also be investigating the links between ethical fishing, quality and price.
1. December 2019 – 31. January 2021
How do catch regulations affect catch efficiency, quality and fuel consumption? And how should the authorities avoid goal conflicts when more and more goals are to be achieved through catch regulations?
1. June 2019 – 31. May 2023
In 2017, the European Commission launched the “Food from the Oceans” report, specifically suggesting that marine species at lower levels in the food chain are the future of sustainable aquaculture.
1. June 2017 – 31. May 2021
One fifth of EU catches originate from non-EU waters. These fisheries are often poorly regulated, management decisions are sometimes based on limited knowledge and enforcement capabilities, compliance and trust between stakeholders tend to lack.
1. April 2016 – 31. March 2020
Climate changes are happening right now and they are threatening sustainable growth in aquaculture and fisheries worldwide. ClimeFish wants to draw the focus to the necessity of change, both when it comes to using opportunities while mitigating risks under the effects of climate change on aquaculture and fisheries.
1. March 2015 – 28. February 2019
