Nofima leads the work on social and economic sustainability. Nofima also has an active role in the area of novel feed ingredients from sustainable sources, the use of by-products and waste to create high value products, and novel production technologies and multi trophic aquaculture production.
Nofima will engage two post-doctorates in the Centre, both related to macroalgea. Xinxin Wang is focusing on production optimisation of macroalage in northern Norway. The other post-doctorate will be engaged in 2020, and focus on social science research on macroalgea.
