About CtrlAQUA

CtrlAQUA is a centre for research-driven innovation (SFI), which shall develop technological and biological innovations that will make closed-containment aquaculture systems a reliable and economically viable technology in aquaculture. The Norwegian institute Nofima is the host institution, and there are six research partners from Norway, Sweden and the United States, as well as 14 industry partners. CtrlAQUA is co-financed by the Research Council of Norway and its partners, and shall operate from 2015 to 2023.

About SFI:

“What stands out in 2020, is that CtrlAQUA is in continuous progress with solid work with innovations. However, there are still some bottlenecks left before we can say that the systems are fully developed to fulfil sustainability goals and for some systems, also full commercialization”, says Åsa Espmark, Centre Director of CtrlAQUA.

In the annual report for 2020 we focus on these issues with two articles:

  • One article is addressing the development of semi-closed systems, exemplified with Harald Takle in Cermaq using the semi-closed system Certus.
  • In the second article, Frederic Gaumet in Krüger Kaldnes is interviewed about their contribution in making the RAS systems more energy efficient.

Not least, the annual report contains a sum up of the year, scientific highlights and more.

Please view this reader friendly version of the annual report and enjoy reading!
