With the use of modern, research-based process technology and expertise, unused or under utilized biomass of marine or terrestrial origin can be used for new, marketable products. We coordinate, develop and increase Nofima’s total expertise related to the future of sustainable protein production. Peptek is a strategic research initiative focused on sustainability, total utilization, food safety and future food security.

In BALANCE we will increase the basic understanding of how nutrients in the feed, in combination with genetic background, affect the occurrence of metabolically induced health and quality problems in Atlantic salmon.

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.
18. November 2019
The health and welfare of farmed and captured aquatic animals is becoming increasingly important for current and future aquaculture systems. We need to improve our understanding of their health and welfare status to strengthen the resilience and robustness of both the animals and the industry.
