Biography Tone Aspevik
I work as a scientist at Nofima and my main interests are within the fields of Marine Biotechnology, enzymatic hydrolysis, downstream processing, sensory science and side stream utilization. I have a PhD within enzymatic hydrolysis on heads and backbones from salmon, with focus on choice of enzyme and bitter taste development in the protein hydrolysates. Current research activity covers a vide range of challenges related to the utilization and processing of marine side streams, from white fish, pelagic species and salmon, and where the main goal is to produce products for human consumption.
