This project has evaluated the future role for the coastal fleet within capture-based aquaculture. Three long-line vessels and two seine-net vessels participated. The project is value-chain oriented and important quality variables as colour, blood-residues, yield etc. have been monitored. The main conclusion is that long-line is a suitable gear for capture-based aquaculture. Other conclusions are: The quality of the fish improve if kept alive post catch, Cod from capture-based aquaculture gives an optimal quality, provided correctly slaughtered. Criteria for the new on-board technology have been developed. Time and conditions for physiological restitution post catch is found. New flat-bottom cages for restitution of newly caught cod is described. The mechanism for gas-bladder restorations is described. Methods for killing and bleeding of cod are tested
